Introduction
The Collegio Carlo Alberto and the Centre for Economic Policy Research (CEPR) invite submissions for their first annual joint workshop. The workshop is on Contracts, Incentives and Information and will take place at Collegio Carlo Alberto (Turin) on 2nd and 3rd December.

There will be no parallel sessions.

The organisers hope that this workshop can take place physically in Turin but will continue to monitor the situation. However, due to the uncertainty of COVID-19 and travel restrictions, the workshop may become a completely virtual workshop depending on the situation closer to the time.

9 - 10 December 2021 / Online / The International Centre for Economic Analysis

Gender inequality has increased during the COVID-19 pandemic. The effect on female employment was greater because the lockdowns impacted sectors in which a large portion of women work, such as the service sector. Moreover, school closures made it impossible for many women to keep working because of their central role in childcare. The conference will be devoted to the analysis of the potential persistence of these changes and their consequences for gender inequality.
