The W+GRA conducts and disseminates research on the social and economic status of women and girls in the Charlotte‐Mecklenburg region. W+GRA research is used to promote public dialogue, inform public policy and programmatic priorities, focusing on key areas such as education, employment, economic security, health and violence against women.
In March 2021, the W+GRA in partnership with Ally Financial and Bank of America held its bi-annual summit, “Recovery and Discovery: Women & Girls in a Dual Pandemic.” The summit focused on the impact of COVID-19 on education, employment, health, domestic violence, and the economic mobility of women and girls in our Charlotte metropolitan community.
This led us to research centered around what C. Nicole Mason calls a “she-cession...an economic downturn where job and income losses are affecting women more than men." This is the W+GRA’s focus for the foreseeable future, as the Charlotte region continues to deal with the aftermath of the pandemic and the recession.
