The Women in Economics Network hosted the Australian Gender Economics Workshop (AGEW2019) in Melbourne on 13-15 February 2019, co-hosted with RMIT University.
The program will feature academic paper presentations and a policy symposium on the topic "How can economics contribute to the pursuit of gender equity?". The workshop will provide the opportunity for researchers and policy analysts to come together to share their research insights across of spectrum of topics related to gender equality, and to converse with policymakers about how to translate this evidence base and knowledge into action.
AGEW2019 will also offer a Professional Development program comprising a Gender Lensing Masterclass aimed at equipping professional economists with the skills and insights to undertake a gender-sensitive evaluation of policy settings, and an Academic Career Development Session designed to provide mentoring advice and guidance to early- and mid-career female academics.
