Women in Economics

Women in Economics
Economics lacks diversity. Hear from inspirational female economists and let’s close the gender gap. Event for GCSE and A-Level students.

Discover Economics is proud to host Women in Economics as part of our campaign to reach more under-represented young people and bring diversity to the sector. This event is delivered in partnership with The Women in Economics Initiative and as part of International Women’s Day.

  • 1 in 6 boys takes A-Level economics but only 1 in 17 girls do
  • Female undergraduates outnumbered 2:1

The economy affects everyone, and every decision we make feeds in to affect that
economy. Unless economists are diverse, we cannot hope to build a complete understanding of the economy, and, with it, formulate the right kinds of policies.

Join us on this workshop chaired by Anna Isaac, Economics Editor, The Independent, where the current gender gap is examined by inspirational female economists from University of Bristol, NHS England, London and Partners and Ofgem sharing their career journeys.

Discover Economics is a campaign led by the Royal Economic Society which aims to:

– broaden the appeal of economics to potential students

– change their perceptions of economics and economists

– attract more students from under-represented groups (women, state school/further education college students and ethnic minorities)
