OwnIt is a peer support network helping women take #ClimateAction through their personal finances. Simply by getting a group of friends or colleagues together, women are better able to turn climate change concerns into action, improving their financial literacy to boot.
“It felt empowering and radical to discuss money, finances and climate action with a group of women. I’ve moved my current accounts & now I’m looking into moving my pension.”
- Leah, OwnIt participant
140 women have moved > £1.2 million so far, through actions such as moving their pension provider or making their first ethical investment. 28% moved their bank account, 20% switched pensions and 20% made an ethical investment.
<aside> 💡 Now we have set an audacious goal. Can we move > £1 billion by 2030?
To shoot for this goal, we aim to scale the impact of OwnIt by 10 times every 3 years:
£10m by 2024
£100m by 2027
£1bn by 2030
<aside> 💡 We're looking for a pioneering group of Founder Sponsors to join Ethex and Energise Africa and each contribute at least £5,000 by Jan 2022 to help us grow the model and reach the next 500 women. Download our Sponsorship Pack for more.
We know there are countless organisations for whom gender equity, climate action and/or financial innovation are high priority. Working with OwnIt could help us both reach our goals and make a greater impact quicker.
