The central issue Ownershift is working towards is increasing women’s access to ownership. By lowering systemic barriers and spreading knowledge as well as changing norms we will increase women’s ownership and financial autonomy. We bring about a powershift for creating a platform for equal lives and societies. Ownershift believes that representation is super important, but the power that comes with ownership is also needed to truly change power structures that can bring about the equality needed to create fair, sustainable, and lasting change. A supporting but absolutely central correlating goal, is the need for assessing what measurements are taken in regards to ownership and advocating for the measures we find missing. We agree with this quote: “Not having data on a certain area, behavior or society means that you cannot design the right policies, you cannot track progress, you cannot evaluate. You are basically not accountable.” - Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.
