The following two programs are housed in the Kalmanovitz Initiative:

Labor is the official journal for the Labor and Working-Class History Association (LAWCHA), housed within the Kalmanovitz Initiative for Labor and the Working Poor at Georgetown University. As a site for both historical research and commentary, Labor hopes to provide a scaffolding for understanding the roots of our current dilemmas. While still engaging social movements and institutions based on industrial work, Labor gives equal attention to other critical labor systems and social contexts, including agricultural work, slavery, unpaid and domestic labor, the informal sector, and the professions.

WILL Empower (Women Innovating Labor Leadership) is a bold new initiative to identify, nurture, train and convene a new generation of women's labor leadership, with a focus on racial and gender equality. It is a partnership between the Kalmanovitz Initiative for Labor and the Working Poor at Georgetown University and the Center for Innovation in Worker Organizing at Rutgers University, and is a legacy project of the Berger-Marks Foundation. Programming will include cohorts of learning, fellowships, apprenticeships and efforts to inspire and shape public discourse on women's labor issues.
