Re:Gender, formerly National Council for Research on Women, works to end gender inequity by exposing root causes and advancing research-informed action. Working with multiple sectors and disciplines, we are shaping a world that demands fairness across difference.
Comprised of more than 350 institutions and individuals, Re:Gender's network  connects research, policy and practice to end gender inequity. Institutions include cross-sector representation from academia, business, government, labor, philanthropy and nonprofit organizations—such as social justice, cultural, health-related and women's organizations. Individual members include advocates, change agents, policy thinkers, practitioners, public intellectuals, researchers and other allies. Re:Gender harnesses the collective power of its network to provide knowledge, analysis and thought leadership on a range of issues.

The Tagline: research. rethink. reframe.
- A nod to both the research, policy and practice composition of our network and our work to collectively change the way gender is thought of and treated in society
- The symbol underneath the re, a modern interpretation of an Awen symbol, conveys multiple ideas:
- The concept of three captures the organizations three-pronged, cross-sector network (research, policy, and practice)
- Gender is not a binary. It is a spectrum that is influenced by all aspects of our identities, including age, race, class, culture, etc.; matching the color in the symbol reinforces that message
- It lies flat and underneath the re to emphasize the networks role in regarding and to be suggestive of a multidirectional flow of information
- The tagline is purposefully placed under gender to convey that gender is the subject of the researching, rethinking, and reframing.

Re:Gender works to end gender inequity and discrimination against girls and women by exposing root causes and advancing research-informed action. Working with multiple sectors and disciplines, we are shaping a world that demands fairness across difference.
Re:Gender envisions a world in which gender and sex are not used to determine ones worth or opportunity. Our work questions the values placed on gender and sex, e.g., female/feminine is worth less than male/masculine. By bringing to light how assumptions about gender and sex restrict all members of society, we prompt people to shift their understanding and behavior. We believe that when difference, as expressed through gender, sex, and the other layers of identity, is valued equally, all individuals and institutions can achieve their full potential.
What does Re:Gender mean by a gender lens? People will sometimes use the word "gender" when they actually mean "women and girls" (e.g., the vast majority of those using the term “gender-based violence" mean violence directed at women and girls, and do not include sexual violence against boys and men or transgender and gender-nonconforming people). Re:Gender does not. When we use gender, we are referring to the full spectrum: feminine, masculine and everything in-between (cis and transgender men and women, gender-nonconforming people, agenders, etc.), including the intersection of gender and race, sexual orientation, class, immigration status, nationality, ability, etc.
Re:Gender's unique role is in facilitating better alignment between academic research agendas and the practical information needs of policy, advocacy, corporate and community groups. To advance gender equity, our society needs more creative problem-solving approaches. Difference is the fire starter that sparks collective curiosity and feeds the fire of creativity and innovation. Difference is our core value.
Identity: Addressing discrimination based on gender (including intersections with race/ethnicity, class, ability, nationality, age, sexual orientation, religion, gender identity, immigration status, etc.)
Economic Well-Being: Issues of economic justice, work fairness, and business leadership
Thriving Environments: From personal safety (e.g., sexual assault) to community (e.g., civic leadership) to global (e.g., climate change) concerns
Re:Gender's strategic plan establishes new tools that will be the primary vehicles for programming. Network member contributions will support and drive the success of many of the tools. They are:
Gender Stat: A snapshot of quantitative metrics related to the status of gender; produced throughout the year and published as a collection annually; the long-term goal is to create a web-based, aggregated and non-aggregated research and information clearinghouse on the status of gender in the U.S.
Annual conference: An opportunity for the entire network to explore research related to an annual theme
Summits and round tables: Virtual and in-person convenings to connect individuals and institutions working on different aspects of the same issue
Literature reviews: A survey of research and commentary on a specific topic, developed with members of the network
Primers: Explainers on gender-related topical issues and debates, including commentary by members of the network
Corporate Circle tools & tips: Take-aways on gender research related to challenges specific to corporate environments
