Women in Economics – Status quo and ways forward
Women in Economics – status quo and ways forward is the first event organized by the network WinE-DK Women in Economics Denmark. On this day, we will zoom in on sources for gender imbalances in the economics profession. We will take this evidence, group discussions and expert input as a point of departure for a focus on what we all - students, researchers, management - can do to put diversity in economics on the agenda.
With an offset in her central scientific contributions on the subject, Lise will give a research perspective on gender differences in academia. Sarah will draw on her experience as a head of department and talk about what role management can play in addressing gender differences.
