The Center on Poverty and Inequality

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.

Initiative on Gender Justice & Opportunity

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.

Economic Security & Opportunity Initiative

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.
