Women in all parts of the world suffer from violence and discrimination. They are grossly under-represented in political and economic decision-making processes.
The FUSION Foundation is committed to being a dynamic and strong champion for women and girls, particularly indigenous women, providing opportunities for individuals to discover their powerful voice at the global, regional and local levels. This can be accomplished by ensuring the consistent and serious inclusion of Indigenous women as well as advocates of women’s community perspectives in all discussions of human rights. This action can unite Indigenous women leaders and emerging leaders to share information and knowledge, coordinate agendas, build unity and develop leadership and advocacy skills.
The FUSION Foundation promotes the advancement of women’s rights, gender equality and empowerment as an integral part of a just society.
The FUSION Foundation believes gender equality is not only a basic human right, but its achievement has enormous socio-economic
ramifications. Empowering women fuels thriving sustainable economies. Yet gender inequalities remain deeply entrenched in every society. Women lack access to healthy, sustainable, life-giving work and face occupational segregation and gender wage gaps. They are too often without access to basic education and health care.
The FUSION Foundation, grounded in the vision of equality enshrined in the UN Charter, Women’sFUSION, among other issues, works for the following three initiatives:
eliminate discrimination against women and girls;
Vision and Goals:
The FUSION Foundation envisions a world that is more interconnected into the challenges that we share by looking at restorative justice together. This can be accomplished by bringing together communities to know the women are not alone. By working together, women learn they are not alone and their issues are ones that are shared around the world with resources, albeit limited in some capacities, to address each issue. When women’s needs are addressed and met, we expand our world to welcome women around the world in dialogue. We can collectively share projects that have been effective in one’s own community.
