In working to achieve economic equity and to better understand the experiences of all women in the workforce and in society, we use both racial equity and intersectional frameworks in our research and analysis to help generate strategies and solutions that are grounded in the economic realities of women and families.
We also prioritize building an inclusive and welcoming work environment that values the diverse perspectives and experiences of all staff.
