A Better Balance joined researchers and advocates from across the country in Washington, D.C., for Pathways to Gender Equality, a conference organized by the Institute for Women’s Policy Research and American University’s Program on Gender Analysis in Economics. The conference featured a wide range of economic and policy experts, including such leaders as former Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen.
