Founded in 2014, Resource Equity focuses exclusively on gender, land, and resources. Our founders have over 45 years combined experience and we collaborate with individuals and organizations worldwide to advocate for legal, policy, and social change aiming to achieve secure land and resource rights for women.
Our team has partnered with in-country professionals working on women’s land and resource issues in Africa (Burkina Faso, Ethiopia, Ghana, Kenya, Liberia, Madagascar, Morocco, Rwanda, Tanzania, Uganda); Asia (China, India, Vietnam); and Eastern Europe and Central Asia (Azerbaijan, Bulgaria, Kosovo, Kyrgyzstan, Russia, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan). We have worked for the World Bank, MCC, USAID, GIZ, DFID, the FAO, Ford Foundation, Care International, and many others.
In addition to our advocacy and capacity development work, we teach classes at the University of Washington School of Law and we run LandWise, the digital collection of laws governing rights to land and property for women.
