As the organization has grown and careers have developed, members have moved, changed positions or retired. We'd like to extend a welcome to RPWF alumnae to join our current membership at the April 2017 meeting.

North Carolina’s urban spaces are among the fastest growing places in the world. Our state is a magnet for Americans and immigrants alike. While the topline demographic data show population growth, the real insights come once you begin to peel away layers and look more closely at who lives here, who is moving in and how those trends are altering our state’s economy. Rebecca’s blog is mandatory reading for anyone involved in North Carolina policy decisions. She’s an insightful speaker who leaves audiences with understanding about how demographics affect our lives.
Dr. Rebecca Tippett is the founding Director of Carolina Demography at the Carolina Population Center at UNC-Chapel Hill which started in 2013. With more than a decade of experience analyzing demographic and economic data, she has spent the last 7 years translating research into specific, usable information and knowledge to inform decision-making, evaluation, and policy. At Carolina Demography, she helps North Carolina government and business leaders understand and anticipate how population change affects them and their organizations. A transplant to North Carolina from the Midwest, she earned her BA in Sociology and Political Science from The Ohio State University and her MA and PhD in Sociology from Duke University.
