Judith M. Gueron

Speaking on:
Time Limiting Welfare: Lessons from the States

Judith M. Gueron of New York is president of the Manpower Demonstration Research Corporation (MDRC), which she joined as its first research director in 1974.   MDRC is a nonprofit, nonpartisan organization that designs and evaluates education and employment-focused programs aimed at improving the self-sufficiency and life prospects of low-income Americans.  A widely published, nationally recognized expert on welfare reform, Dr. Gueron is the senior author of From Welfare to Work (1991).   She has served on several advisory panels addressing poverty, employment, and family assistance -- including the national Advisory Board on Welfare Indicators, to which President Clinton has just appointed her -- and has testified before Congress numerous times.  In 1988, she was awarded the American Evaluation Association's Myrdal Prize for Evaluation Practice in recognition of high-quality studies of employment issues.   Dr. Gueron received a B.A. from Radcliffe College in 1963 and a Ph.D. in economics from Harvard University in 1971.
