Advancing Gender Equity with Guaranteed Income

April 24, 2024 | 4:00 PM EST | Free, Virtual Event

Guaranteed income is a social welfare benefit growing in popularity across the country. It provides unconditional transfer payments to citizens to meet basic needs. This month's forum will explore how guaranteed income pilots are effectively combating poverty and improving everything from health outcomes to levels of full-time employment. We'll also address the critical question: How can we cultivate the political momentum necessary for the development and expansion of guaranteed income initiatives? Whether you're a policymaker, advocate, or simply curious about learning more, this forum promises to be an engaging exploration of guaranteed income and its potential for closing the gender wealth gap.
