About this event
H.E.R., in collaboration with The EEA and UCL’s Stone Centre, will host an all-day event to further explore career structures in economics.
There is increasing awareness around the lack of diversity in academia in terms of gender, race, ethnicity, and other social dimensions. Within economics and economic policy decisions, the representation of women and minorities in faculty groups has not been incrementally improving over the past 10 years according to various data analysis, such as that conducted by the Committee on the Status of Minority Groups in Economics Profession. This lack of representation occurs at the level of hiring as well as promotion, and the gaps are particularly large at higher and more senior positions. It is, therefore, crucial to understand whether (and how) current career structures in economics promote the selection and retention of talent among academic economists.
In response to this, LSE’s Hub for Equal Representation in the economy (H.E.R.) and the European Economic Association (EEA) partnered to launch an initiative aimed at supporting the development of research in this area. Research to provide concrete and feasible policy recommendations to the EEA and other institutions within the field was funded through this initiative.
On Wednesday 6 March, H.E.R., in collaboration with The EEA and UCL’s Stone Centre, will host an all-day event to further explore career structures in economics. The event will bring together authors of the funded papers to present and discuss their findings. Following this dedicated workshop will be a policy and interventions session, exploring ways in which action is being (and can be) implemented to increase representation in economics.
