The Georgetown Center on Poverty and Inequality (GCPI) works with policy leaders, researchers, practitioners, advocates, and other experts to develop policies and practices to alleviate poverty and inequality and advance racial and gender equity in the United States.
GCPI develops innovative policy ideas, advances effective solutions, and identifies risks and harms of inequitable policies and practices through robust research and analysis, cross-sector convenings and events, and groundbreaking reports and publications.
The work of GCPI is conducted by two teams: the Initiative on Gender Justice and Opportunity and the Economic Security and Opportunity Initiative.
The Center's Initiative on Gender Justice and Opportunity focuses on supporting low-income girls and girls of color. The Initiative’s work identifies barriers to girls’ health and well-being, elevates girls’ unique assets and needs, and develops solutions to better support girls in our public systems.
GCPI’s Economic Security and Opportunity Initiative works to alleviate poverty and inequality, advance racial and gender equity, and expand economic inclusion through research, analysis, and ambitious policy ideas.
