Dear Gender and Economics Working Group members,
We hope you are enjoying the YSI Virtual Plenary, we certainly are! We look forward to seeing you in our upcoming activities. Please find all the relevant details below:
Input Talk: Lee Badgett – Friday Nov 13 (14:00 – 16:00 UTC)
In this session we will bring to light specificities of gender and sexual orientation. We aim to focus in the answer "Why should economists study LGBTQIA+ people and other sexual and gender minority groups?"
Please note that this session will take place at the Inequalities constellation.
After today, we return to the Gender and Economics Ship for our final three sessions:
A Gendered Analysis of the World of Work in the Global South – Saturday Nov 14 (14:00 – 16:00 UTC)
Labour economics has always had a prominent role in the field of gender and economics. Far from losing momentum, these debates are in constant development with new and exciting findings emerging every day. In this panel, we will discuss different case studies from the Global South with the goal of exploring common patterns as well as identifying specific trends.
Education and Women’s Empowerment: Trends and Challenges – Sunday Nov 15 (14:00 – 16:00 UTC)
This session explores papers presentations by young scholars on education, labor outcomes, and effects of gender discrimination, how trends have changed in the recent years, what challenges we face now.
Brainstorm Session – Tuesday Nov 17 (15:00 – 16:00 UTC)
Got something you are interested in or curious about? A question you’d like to explore further? Learn how you can turn that into a YSI Project in your Working Group. Join and flesh out your ideas (however big or small) with help from those who did it before.
We look forward to seeing you there!
