> *What:* Unjust Conditions: Women’s Work and the Hidden Cost of Cash
> Transfer Programs
> *When: *Tuesday, Dec 4th, 12-1pm
> *Where:* Johnson Hall 111
> *Abstract* Conditional cash transfer (CCT) programs are praised as
> efficient mechanisms for changing poor people’s health and education
> seeking behavior, and promoting financial inclusion. Yet behind the good
> intentions, CCT programs’ successes ring hollow, based solely on metrics
> for children’s attendance at school and health appointments. This talk
> presents ethnographic findings from a new book on the World Bank's "model"
> CCT program in Peru. In looking beyond routine program evaluations, it
> reveals a host of hidden costs for the mothers who meet the conditions, and
> will provide pragmatic recommendations for research and policy.
> *Bio* Dr. Tara Patricia Cookson is Co-Founder and Director of Ladysmith,
> a Social Purpose Corporation that provides research services for
> international development organizations including UN Women, UNICEF, and the
> OECD.  She is author of Unjust Conditions: Women’s Work and the Hidden Cost
> of Cash Transfer Programs, which is based on her PhD research at the
> University of Cambridge, where she was a Gates Cambridge Scholar. In 2014
> she received the Bill Gates Sr Prize for founding a leadership program for
> early career researchers called Learning for Purpose. Tara is currently a
> SSHRC Research Fellow at the University of British Columbia, and is a
> Seattle Women’s Commissioner.
