WFMN believes in the leadership and ideas of young women and gender-expansive leaders in our state. Through the Young Women’s Initiative of Minnesota, the WFMN Innovators program provides microgrants of $2,500 directly to young women and gender-expansive people (ages 16-24) to fuel their ideas and support their development as leaders with microgrants, cohort-based learning, and individual leadership coaching. Grants through the WFMN Innovators program fund projects that advance gender and racial equity by visionary young women who are leading within their communities from the intersections of their identities and experiences.
