We work to improve equality and tackle discrimination across society. Our work encourages change in workplaces, education establishments, households, public services and public spaces.
In the UK, we have partnered with the Government Equalities Office (GEO) and a growing number of employers to improve our understanding of what works to increase gender equality and reduce the pay gap.
In the USA we have worked with a number of cities to increase the diversity of new recruits to police forces.
We work to reduce gender based violence worldwide. In Australia, live projects are applying behavioural insights to the challenge of sexual harassment.
