Second conference on Gender and career progression

The Bank of England, the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System, and the European Central Bank are organizing the second conference on Gender and career progression to be held on 21 October 2019 at the European Central Bank

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?
