Center for Women's History fosters a more inclusive future

March 2018 │ New York

Deutsche Bank Americas Foundation is proud to support the Center for Women's History and expand its reach into classrooms throughout the US.

This new education and exhibition hub illuminates how women across the spectrums of race, class and background actively shaped every chapter of American history, and how their contributions continue to reverberate today.

The Center is the first of its kind in the nation housed within the walls of a major museum (the New-York Historical Society). This position of prominence means that the Center’s exhibitions and programs stand to meaningfully address the persistent underrepresentation and misrepresentation of women in traditional historical narratives.

To expand the Center's reach, the Foundation has underwritten an online curriculum resource for educators throughout the country, Women and the American Story. Last year, 2,000 teachers made use of this resource, providing their estimated 59,000 students with a more accurate and comprehensive picture of Americans' collective history. The curriculum especially benefits female students, as it empowers them to connect with the nation's past, present and future as fully as their male peers.

In addition to this initiative, Deutsche Bank is supporting similar equity-based work at a number of other educational and cultural institutions.
