Putting Minds and Hands to Work
Georgetown University's Kalmanovitz Initiative for Labor and the Working Poor develops creative strategies and innovative public policy to improve workers' lives in a changing economy. Through the Kalmanovitz Initiative, Georgetown faculty and students collaborate with labor and business leaders, policymakers, working people and their advocates to craft practical solutions to real-world challenges for workers and employers.
The Initiative draws on Georgetown's distinctive identity – its commitment to intellectual excellence, grounding in the Catholic and Jesuit traditions, history of inter-religious cooperation, global reach, and prominence as an arena of policy debate in the nation's capital – to advance prosperity, broadly-shared economic justice, and respect for the dignity of labor.
The Kalmanovitz Initiative is Launched
A reception on November 10 in Riggs Library at Georgetown University marked the formal launch of the Kalmanovitz Initiative for Labor and the Working Poor. A gathering of over 100 supporters from the university, metropolitan Washington, organized labor, business, religious, and community organizations was on hand for the event. The gathering was addressed by Georgetown President John J. DeGioia, Lou Giraudo of the Kalmanovitz Charitable Foundation, and Joseph A. McCartin, Executive Director of the Initiative.
