Persianate Gender Network was formed in early 2012 as a not-for-profit organisation at Washington DC. While it follows the mission of PGN but acts as a separate entity.
The initial focus is around women's economic empowerment through employment, self-employment and entrepreneurship. It aims to serve Persianate women.
The network is set out to:
Establish a broad and diverse membership;
Identify and map out individual and organizational expertise accross the globe;
Launch a comprehensive e-Library;
Provide a periodic conference.
