Projects & Campaigns
The Network conducts original research and collects data on women and communities of color. Research generated at the Network is used to help create informed public policies at the local,state, and national levels. We also analyze public policies to determine the impact they will have on individuals, families, and communities. Our research and policy priority areas include economic security, health disparities, leadership and human rights.The goal of our research and policy analysis is to increase access and relieve disparities for women and communities of color.
Lead the Way is a unique capacity building and leadership initiative for women of color mid-level managers and emerging Executive Directors working in non-profit and community-based organizations.
