Women in Macroeconomics: social sciences

Rebuilding Macroeconomics will be participating in the ESRC’s Festival of Social Science to increase awareness of social science research and have a discussion with the public. The event is titled “Women in Economics” and will discuss some of our current research that looks at inequality, gender and macroeconomics.

There is a lack of involvement and under-representation of women in economics. This is seen in universities, policy-making institutions and in engagement with the public. As economics has a direct impact on the progress and well-being of society, this is a serious shortcoming.

We offer the chance to get involved with research that is bringing together Gender Studies and Macroeconomics. Our panel will discuss these important issues, explain what we are working on, and most of all, provide an opportunity for you to voice your opinions and experiences. The end result of this research is to advise policymakers on economic issues around gender, and therefore it is important to include the voices of those involved.
