Female students in Economics WorkshopTuesday 28 May 2019
The Department of Economics will host the first workshop for female students in Economics.
There is a lot of discussion on women under-representation in the Departments of Economics in the UK universities and in the profession more generally. Lack of diversity in the economics student body has important implications for policymaking and the outcome decisions that are pursued and affects the potential to attract other females to the discipline. This workshop aims to bring Economics undergraduate students’ perspectives to the debate. Listening the challenges that current students face and their ideas on how to overcomes these challenges may be a good starting point to build on new inclusive policies that make the discipline more attractive to a variety of students and address some of the current issues
