The Center on Women and Public Policy educates, supports, and inspires women leaders; applies a gender lens across the public policy spectrum; conducts cutting edge, action oriented, community-engaged public policy research; and convenes and connects across divides to bring down barriers to gender equity and build broad-based public responses.
