The Australian Gender Economics Workshop (AGEW2020) was hosted by the Women in Economics Network (WEN) in partnership with QUT, in Brisbane, Australia, on 5-7 February 2020.

The AGEW2020 program can be found on the event website

The aim of AGEW is to foster a community of economic researchers who can collectively contribute to the evidence base needed to guide the pursuit of more gender equitable outcomes in society.

AGEW 2020 included a program of research presentations, three highly esteemed keynote speakers (Professor Shoshana GrossbardProfessor Victor Lavy and Professor Gigi Foster), and a policy symposium session which drew together the insights and implications delivered by the research papers.

A recording of Professor Foster's address is available for viewing on the WEN YouTube channel
