Australian Gender Economics Workshop


Australian Gender Economics Workshop (AGEW)
In partnership with the Bankwest Curtin Economics Centre (BCEC) at Curtin University, the Women in Economics Network is pleased to announce the first Australian Gender Economics Workshop, to be held on 8-9 February 2018 in Fremantle, Western Australia.

Our keynote speakers will be Professor Alison Booth (Australian National University) and Associate Professor Betsey Stevenson (University of Michigan).

This workshop will provide researchers with a forum for presenting and discussing innovative research incorporating gender analysis in all areas of economics. We invite both theoretical and empirical contributions to the workshop, but priority will be given to papers that can inform policy-relevant questions.

The workshop will include a special policy session involving senior influencers from government, research, industry and not-for-profit communities. The purpose of this session is to draw research insights from the workshop in ways that will actively shape policies to enhance the status of women across the full spectrum of economic and social outcomes.
