Janet C. Gornick is Professor of Political Science and Sociology at the Graduate Center, at the City University of New York. She is also Director of the Luxembourg Income Study, a cross-national research institute and data archive based in Luxembourg. Most of her research is comparative, across the industrialized countries, and concerns social welfare and labor market policies and their impact on family well-being and gender equality. Her core interest is in public programs that affect parents' capacity to combine employment with caregiving, such as child care, paid family leave, the regulation of working time, and income supports targeted on families with children. More recently, she has studied policy supports for older workers. She holds a PhD in Political Economy and Government from Harvard University.
