SITE Academic Conference – Gender in Economics: From Survival to Career Opportunities
December 17, 2018 - December 18, 2018

This year’s SITE Academic Conference – Gender in Economics: From Survival to Career Opportunities, brings together leading international scholars to discuss what current research tells us about the existing forms of gender inequality worldwide, their causes, and their consequences.

START TIME:2018-12-17 at 08:45

END TIME:2018-12-18 at 16:00

In spite of steady progress in closing gender inequality in several parts of the world over the last decades, gender remains a powerful predictor of many economic and social individual outcomes. Numerous national governments and international organizations have committed to address existing gender inequalities, on the grounds that protecting and promoting women’s rights is equivalent to protecting and promoting human rights. It is also generally understood that gender equality is instrumental in building societies that are more inclusive, and as such more socially and economically developed.

The conference will feature a combination of keynote speakers, paper presentations, and a panel discussion. Some of the themes addressed are the formation of social norms regarding women’s roles in society, intra-household bargaining power and reproductive decision-making, gender violence, and the glass ceiling for women in labor markets and politics. 

Keynote speakers: 

  • Marianne Bertrand, Chris P. Dialynas Distinguished Service Professor of Economics, University of Chicago Booth School of Business
  • Alessandra Voena, Associate Professor in the Department of Economics, University of Chicago
