CEPR is formalising its efforts to improve female representation in the economic profession with the creation of the Women in Economics Initiative. Led by CEPR’s Vice-President, Hélène Rey, this initiative will aim to redress gender imbalances in the economic profession, partnering with CEPR member organisations to promote women within the field.
This page collates the various projects CEPR is involved with, or external initiatives that have been endorsed by CEPR, and provides a single platform through which the myriad of high quality output and initiatives can be accessed. If you are interested in partnering with CEPR on a related project, or for any further information on Women in Economics, please get in touch with Petra Buresova, Development Officer at CEPR [email protected].
WE_ARE Women in Economics: Advancing Research in Economics
In June 2020 CEPR launched a new virtual seminar series WE_ARE Women in Economics: Advancing Research in Economics, where junior women present their work and get constructive feedback from their peers and from senior economists.
The seminars take place bi-weekly on Tuesdays at 1 PM (GMT) and last for 1 hour (40-minutes talk, 20-minute discussion). For those interested, after the discussion breakout rooms open for 10 minutes, to give participants the opportunity to network. The seminar series aims to bring together junior and senior women in economics and to contribute to building an active and cooperative CEPR Women in Economics community.
