International Women's Day: Coffee with Economists

In celebration of International Women's Day we're delighted to invite 16-18 year olds to attend our free virtual event "Coffee with Economists".

Date: Tuesday 8 March 2022
Time: 17:00 - 18:00 (UK Time)
Location: Microsoft Teams, Online

Pop the kettle on and join an informal and inclusive virtual discussion with a panel of female economists as we celebrate International Women's Day 2021.

Covid-19 has drawn attention to the work of economists, however misconceptions around the subject and the stereotypical career opportunities associated with it still exist.

Designed for 16-18 year olds, this event will helps students to find out more about economics as a subject and discover the range of career opportunities available to them. The panel of female economists will share:

  • Their experience of studying economics at university
  • The key transferable skills they think are important for studying economics
  • Their current role and what it involves

There will also be an opportunity for the audience to put their questions to the panel.
