Insights 2022 | Treating Care Workers as Essential, Not Invisible

Each year the Georgia Budget and Policy Institute hosts an annual policy conference to inform policy discussions during the state’s legislative session. For the second year in a row, this annual policy conference will be both free and virtual.

This year’s event will explore how Georgia can better support our care workers, many of whom are women of color. The COVID-19 crisis has underscored how critical these roles are, yet the workers who fill these roles are often treated as invisible in the policy space. Policies that treat care workers as essential are critical to advancing racial and gender equity, yet no real changes have been enacted.

Programming will also include GBPI’s annual analysis of the governor’s budget that will be released in the weeks preceding Insights 2022.

Agenda  will be released soon. Programming will take place Thursday, Jan. 20 1:00 pm-5:00 pm and Friday, Jan. 21 from 9:00 am to 1:00 pm.
