Categories: Staff

Sharita Gruberg is Vice President for Economic Justice at the National Partnership for Women & Families where she will lead the economic justice team in providing expertise and thought leadership in research, advocacy and policy work around many of the issue areas the organization has led on in its 50-year history.

Sharita most recently conducted successful advocacy campaigns, engaged with diverse stakeholders and led policy change at the Center for American Progress. There, she served as vice president for the think tank’s LGBTQI+ Research and Communications Project where she worked to expand legal and lived equality for LGBTQI+ people, particularly those living at the intersection of multiple identities.

Throughout her career, Sharita has made it clear that the best way to advance economic justice policies that benefit women and families is to develop them through a lens of racial justice and with an awareness of the history that systemically has left out underrepresented communities.

Sharita earned her J.D. from the Georgetown University Law Center, and her B.A. in Women’s Studies and Political Science from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
