Next Steps for Progress on Equal Pay

Upholding the core principle of equal pay for equal work stands at the heart of the nation’s commitment to equality and fairness. Yet women consistently identify the lack of equal pay as a top concern that erodes their economic security and perpetuates unfairness in the workplace. There are actionable steps that can be taken in order to strengthen existing protections, improve workplace practices, and move closer to closing the stubbornly persistent wage gap.

Securing the Economic Future of Palestine

Despite the best efforts of presidents of both parties, the United States has yet to broker a comprehensive, two-state solution to the conflict between Israel and the Palestinians. However difficult diplomatic progress may be, there are steps the United States and its allies can take to keep the window for a two-state solution alive. By encouraging economic progress in the Palestinian territories, the United States and its allies can improve the day-to-day lives of average Palestinians and strengthen the foundation for an eventual Palestinian state.

A Labor Market for the Digital Age: Pathways and Opportunities

It is time for a new conversation. Amid large-scale economic transformation, it is vital to ensure all Americans benefit from the wave of digital revolutions that have permeated modern life.

Strategies for Women’s Economic Empowerment

States of Change

The Center for American Progress, AEI, and the Brookings Institution released a groundbreaking report in February 2015 that looks at U.S. demographic change nationally and in every state through 2060. The report’s authors have produced a series of simulations, based on their research, to examine how demographic shifts by race, age, and generation could affect election outcomes from 2016 to 2032. Can either party be confident of its long-term future in light of these demographic changes? What kinds of consequences could these changes have for the family, the workforce, and the social contract? How might policymakers respond?

Please join CAP, AEI, the Brookings Institution, and distinguished experts for wide-ranging bipartisan presentations on demographic change and its implications for America’s electoral future and key policy challenges.
