The conference aims to promote a meaningful discussion among economists of diverse backgrounds, with a focus on fairly representing all voices of our community. We wish to provide a space where selected high-quality research presentations from all fields will be met with a challenging and benevolent audience.

Prof. Emmanuelle Auriol (Toulouse School of Economics)
Prof. Estefania Santacreu-Vasut (ESSEC business school)

The conference will be followed by two events:
A public roundtable about gender discrimination in our profession with an emphasis on possible solutions and an open and interdisciplinary discussion to reflect about the persistence of the gender gap in economics.

More details will follow.

We invite Ph.D. students in their third year or later and post-docs working in ALL FIELDS to submit a full paper by May 27, 2021.

"It’s not too far of a stretch to think that there’s a correlation between style and performance.”

'Neglecting the component of what the poor perceive as attainable is a serious shortcoming,' says Eliana La Ferrara, as she talks about her work on inequality.


The Department of Economics at the University of Warwick will host the first workshop for female students in Economics.

This workshop aims to bring Economics undergraduate students’ perspectives to the debate on how to make Economics a more diverse discipline and attract more female students from different backgrounds. We believe that listening the challenges that current students face and their ideas on how to overcome these challenges will help us to build on a more inclusive environment.

This is event is financed by the Department of Economics at the University of Warwick and has received a Special Projects Grant by the Royal Economic Society.

Submissions for the workshop is now open.

The deadline for submission is 20th of November 2019.

Lucrezia Reichlin, 31 July 2019

Lucrezia Reichlin looks to a future where new cryptocurrency technologies will be used for payment systems, but the money behind them will remain a monopoly of the central banks.

Lucrezia Reichlin, 15 July 2019

Lucrezia Reichlin discusses the need for parsimonious models that exploit a data-rich environment to capture the simple drivers of the economy from complex data sets.

Marianne Bertrand, 12 April 2019

Focusing on her work on gender and inequality, Marianne Bertrand addresses the role that identifying and understanding bias in the job market can play.  She talks about two complementary processes that can reduce bias in hiring: one addresses the implicit biases of those doing the hiring, and trains people to be aware of and avoid their biases; the other re-engineers the hiring process and introduces measures that mitigate for bias. Innovations in machine-learning have a large role to play here.

CEPR is working in partnership with UBS to celebrate contributions of women in economics, with a series of portraits and video interviews on a dedicated website. This programme shines a light on quality research and policymaking from female leaders in their field. "Women in Economics" will feature videos of prominent researchers discussing their work and insights. The content is designed to appeal to non-expert audiences, as well as those with a deeper understanding of economics. Beyond the digital content, the programme will include events for students and economists.
