Event date: 21 October 2019
Sessions will focus primarily on issues encountered by women in finance, economics, and central banks. We interested in conveying the full diversity of women’s experiences in the profession, including intersectionality with race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, and other dimensions.
The conference will last for a day, and we expect that it will consist of papers drawn from a variety of disciplines, methods, and perspectives, as well as a panel discussion. We envision that most papers will be academic-style research papers, but we also invite studies from practitioners that draw on experience in the economics and finance professions.
Areas of particular interest include, but are not limited to:
- How can fields such as finance, economics, and central banking better attract and retain women?
- What are the factors that keep women from entering these fields and advancing in their careers?
- What are the obstacles to greater diversity and inclusion in these fields, and what steps can be taken to overcome them?
- What benefits does increased diversity and inclusion convey to organizations?
