CGPH hosted a meeting of the Collaborative to Advance Equity in Research on Women and Girls of Color. Melissa Harris-Perry, founding director of the Anna Julia Cooper Project on Gender, Race and Politics in the South, was here on campus to moderate a lively discussion between colleagues from CGPH, The Anna Julia Cooper Project and the Century Foundation.

CGPH is committed to the Collaborative to Advance Equity through Research, an initiative to support research on women and girls of color, comprised of 41 member institutions, which together have pledged more than $60 million dollars toward this effort. A group of our CGPH faculty who conduct research in these areas gathered to discuss their work and ways we can collaborate on further initiatives in this important area.
