The Bank of England, the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System and the European Central Bank are organising their second conference on Gender and career progression, to be held on 21 October 2019 at the European Central Bank. Sessions will focus primarily on issues encountered by women working in finance, economics and central banking. We want to convey the full diversity of women’s experiences in these professions, including intersectionality with race, ethnicity, sexual orientation and other categories.

Participants will be selected on the basis of submitted papers or abstracts of about 500 words. The deadline for submissions is 15 May 2019

Gender discrimination varies vastly across nations – an outcome that most would ascribe at least partly to culture. If culture is transmitted via language, as Douglass North asserts, grammar difference should line up with gender discrimination. This column presents new empirical evidence that gender distinctions in language are strongly correlated with female labour-force participation and the use of gender political quotas.
