The Women’s Fund for the Fox Valley Region, the Fond du Lac Area Women’s Fund, the Women’s Fund of Greater Green Bay, and the Women’s Fund of the Oshkosh Area Community Foundation have collaborated to produce COVID-19’s Impact on Women in Northeast Wisconsin Study and interactive dashboard.
The report is based on the response of 1.050 women from the northeast region of Wisconsin to an online survey from March 16 to April 27, 2021. The research was led by a team at the Strategic Research Institute at St. Norbert College. The purpose of this study was to measure and assess the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on lives of women in Northeast Wisconsin.

Key findings from the report:
This collaborative study and interactive dashboard are made possible through a grant from the Basic Needs Giving Partnership of the Greater Green Bay Community Foundation, a funding collaborative that includes funds from the U.S. Venture Open Fund for Basic Needs, the J. J. Keller Foundation and other community donors.
The Women’s Fund is proud to partner with the Fond du Lac Area Women’s Fund, the Women’s Fund of Greater Green Bay, and the Women’s Fund of the Oshkosh Area Community Foundation to produce the Status of Women in Northeast Wisconsin Report.
With the help of the Wisconsin Women’s Council, we were able to compile data for Brown, Fond du Lac, Outagamie and Winnebago counties, as well as data for Wisconsin as a whole. The report is intended to help inform local communities about the realities experienced by women and girls. The 2017 report gives a current and comprehensive picture of the most pressing issues for women and girls in Northeast Wisconsin.
The report analyzes data from 12 key indicators of the status of women in our region and confirms that despite our many successes, much work needs to be done to help women and girls reach their full potential.
