To lead IWPR at this exciting time, the Board has asked long-time member Daisy Chin-Lor to serve as interim President and CEO.  As a former President of Fortune100 companies, Daisy is a global advocate for women and her extensive experience leading organizations through periods of significant change make her a perfect fit for IWPR.

IWPR is in an incredibly strong position today and poised for significant growth. We remain deeply committed to our mission and to ensuring IWPR continues to provide rigorous, high quality research to further empower women and their families. We are also grateful to all our funders, partners and supporters who have stood by IWPR for more than 35 years as we continue to lead the conversations on relevant topics of the day.

Dr. Mason and the Board of Directors have mutually agreed to a change in leadership at IWPR. The Board is deeply grateful for Dr. Mason’s vision, research acumen, and for helping to take IWPR to the next level of impact and influence. In recognition of her contributions, Dr. Mason will receive the honorary title of President Emerita.

In the coming months, you will hear more from IWPR as we roll out exciting new research, embark on new partnerships, and continue to shape the debate about women’s equality in this country. In the meantime, please join us in welcoming Daisy as IWPR’s new Interim President. We know that, with her experience and passion—and IWPR’s talented team—the future is bright for the organization we all love.

“IWPR has been a part of my life for more than 20 years now and I am honored that the Board has asked me to take the helm at such a pivotal moment in our history. Our work is vital to winning economic equity for all women and our 35-year history speaks to its impact and longevity.” –Daisy Chin-Lor
