Inside Open Society: Laura Carvalho, Director of Equity

“The main barriers to equity are political.” Bringing her experience growing up in Brazil, one of the world’s most unequal countries, and her economics expertise, our Director of Equity Laura Carvalho leads our work to tackle global inequity—especially amid the cost of living crisis. Inequality hurts workers, degrades democracies and fuels the rise of authoritarianism. By building more inclusive and sustainable economies, Open Society works to improve peoples’ lives—and the governments who serve them.
