WAPPP (Harvard Kennedy School) - Gender Action Portal

September 01, 2020

The Gender Action Portal (GAP) by the Women and Public Policy Program of Harvard Kennedy School is a collection of summarized research evaluating the impact of specific policies, strategies, and organizational practices to close gender gaps in the areas of economic opportunity, politics, health, and education. GAP focuses on experimental approaches to evaluate policies – both in the field and in the laboratory – and draws from multiple disciplines, including economics, psychology, and organizational behavior. GAP serves as an online tool for decision makers across sectors to utilize evidence-based research in order to create better informed policies and procedures.
