Equal Measures 2030 takes a bold new step in its strategic growth and organisational evolution
Equal Measures 2030 (EM2030) is proud to share that it is embarking on an exciting new phase of growth, as it becomes a fiscally sponsored project of Panorama Global (Panorama), a platform for social change. Under this innovative model, the EM2030 team and partners will continue to lead on mission, strategy, and programming content, but will now also benefit from Panorama’s vital administrative support and global infrastructure. The new arrangement will take effect as of May 1st, 2022.
Commenting on the upcoming transition, Alison Holder, Executive Director of Equal Measures 2030 said, “Panorama’s fiscal sponsorship model is exactly what Equal Measures 2030 needs to support our next phase of growth. We are clear about our mission and values, and guided by our five-year strategy. By joining Panorama, we will benefit from their operational expertise and shared services, allowing us to focus more energy on the data and advocacy work we know drives real change for girls and women around the world.”
“Panorama is pleased to welcome Equal Measures 2030 as a new partner. We applaud EM2030 for their vision, tools, and collaboration in the field of gender equality and achieving the SDGs. Panorama is excited about helping EM2030 navigate the next stage of growth and scale they are attaining to improve the lives of women and girls across the globe,” said Sarah Vaill, Panorama’s Vice President, Programs.
This transition marks an evolution from EM2030’s current arrangement with Plan International, which hosted and part-funded the EM2030 Secretariat between 2016 and 2022. Plan International’s support as EM2030’s first institutional host has been instrumental in bringing to fruition the shared vision developed by the EM2030 partners.
David Charles Thomson, Executive Director Strategy & Collaboration, Plan International, said: “We are incredibly proud to be a founding partner of EM2030 and for the chance to have served on the Partnership Council over the last seven years. Gendered data regarding girls is crucial to highlighting the specific needs of girls, and to advancing our mission of gender equality, and we look forward to seeing where this bold move will take EM2030, and to working with them, and all the partners, as we go forward.” The EM2030 team is working closely with colleagues at Plan International and Panorama to ensure a smooth transition, leading up to May 1st.
“EM2030 is grateful to its staff, partners, funders, and our wider stakeholder network for their support and patience as we work through the complex processes of transferring our operations over the coming days. After many months of preparation in the background, we are working through the final few steps before our team and programmes are fully up and running as a project of Panorama,” Holder said. “We are confident that this next step in our partnership’s journey is the right one to ensure we can go even further towards fulfilling our mission and playing a unique role in the feminist eco-system, connecting data and evidence with advocacy and action on gender equality.”
