C. Nicole Mason is the new president of the Institute for Women’s Policy Research, a nonprofit think tank in Washington, D.C. She is the youngest person currently leading one of the major inside the Beltway think tanks in Washington, D.C.

For the past two decades, Dr. Mason has spearheaded research on issues relating to economic security, poverty, women’s issues, and entitlement reforms; policy formation and political participation among women, communities of color, and youth; and racial equity.

Prior to taking over the leadership of the Institute, Dr. Mason was the executive director of the Women of Color Policy Network at New York University’s Robert F. Wagner Graduate School of Public Service.

“I am excited and honored to be leading IWPR, the nation’s leading and only think tank squarely focused on achieving economic equity and equality for women and families,” said Dr. Mason. “We are in a moment where women and our hard-fought wins on gender equity are under constant attack and threat. We cannot sit on the sidelines. IWPR has an important role to play in helping generate policies, solutions, and strategies grounded in the experiences of real women across the country.
