The Women and Public Policy Program’s faculty, research fellows, and students are committed to advancing women and gender equity globally. Through rigorous research, we offer gender insights into work, politics, and conflict that have the potential to reduce or eliminate barriers so all people can fulfill their life aspirations unconstrained by gender bias.
In their Harvard Business Review article, WAPPP co-director Iris Bohnet and co-authors suggest inequitable decision-making can be addressed by making DEI more immediately obvious, or salient, to managers immediately before they need to make consequential decisions.
How can you use WAPPP's Gender Action Portal (GAP) to advance gender equity in your field? Explore six ways that GAP can be useful to researchers, policymakers, journalists, students, practitioners, and beyond.
In an episode of The Institute for Gender and the Economy's Busted podcast, WAPPP co-director Hannah Riley Bowles discusses how people of different social groups experience different responses when they try to negotiate—and how women negotiate in many different ways beyond just for pay.

ACKNOWLEDGMENT OF LAND AND PEOPLE
The Women and Public Policy Program and the Harvard Kennedy School are located on the ancestral, traditional, and contemporary unceded homeland of the Massachusett people, the surviving descendants of the first people of Massachusetts and of the Neponset band of the Massachusett. We honor this tradition and work toward a gender equity agenda that addresses the needs of all women, including Indigenous women and Indigenous communities.
