Our Mission

The Gender Equity Policy Institute (GEPI) is a nonprofit organization dedicated to accelerating gender equality in the United States through data-based applied research, strategic advocacy, and policy development. Our mission is to rebalance systems, guarantee equal benefits and opportunities, and secure a just and sustainable future for all people.

What we do

At GEPI, we conduct and publish research on the best practices for advancing gender equity. We assess public policies and business practices to identify the effects on people of all genders, with particular attention to the impacts on groups, such as women, people of color, and LGBTQ people, who have been systematically disadvantaged by discrimination, bias, and structural inequality.

 

By educating policymakers, business leaders, and advocates about the inequities and disparities embedded in seemingly neutral economic and political processes, we provide the tools and knowledge that leaders need to rebalance systems, guarantee equal benefits and opportunities, and secure a just and sustainable future for all people.
