On this episode of Deeply Talks, News Deeply CEO and executive editor Lara Setrakian talks to Cynthia Nimmo, president and CEO of the Women’s Funding Network, which was born with the intention of bringing “together the financial power and influence of funders of gender equity in order to address and solve critical and complex social issues ranging from poverty to global security.”
