Annie Contractor grew up in rural Wyoming, served as a US Peace Corps volunteer in Zambia, hand-built a log cabin, farmed lettuce in Hawai'i, and amplified Brazilian activists. In the midst of these experiences, she designed and led 4 social justice research studies on 3 continents that have directly impacted food security, environmental justice, housing justice, and low-income mothers' access to quality jobs. Workplace Equity Partners aims to leverage these skills of applied research to the task of eliminating differences in pay, career opportunity, and work satisfaction for people of all identities.
