Australian Gender Economics Workshop 2022

PLEASE NOTE: This event is now a ‘virtual only’ event.
Registration for the virtual 2022 Australian Gender Economics Workshop opens on 15 December 2021 on the workshop webpage.

The workshop, co-hosted by the Women in Economics Network and the Australian National University, will be held both virtually and in-person at the Crawford School of Public Policy at the Australian National University, in Canberra, during Australian Eastern Daylight Time (Sydney/Melbourne/Canberra) from Thursday, 10 February to Friday, 11 February 2022.

In addition, one of our keynote speakers, Professor Núria Rodríguez-Planas, will offer a three hour virtual course on “Women’s labor market, institutions and social norms” on Wednesday, 9 February 2022.

Over the last five years our annual workshop has built and widened a professional, supportive and collegiate community. A community that has a shared goal of a deeper understanding of not only what drives gender inequality in our society and economy, but what works to reduce inequalities that exist and persist today.

Here are some of the highlights for this year’s AGEW 2022:

  • Two distinguished keynote speakers – Professor Guyonne Kalb from the University of Melbourne and Professor Núria Rodríguez-Planas, City University of New York, Queens College.

  • With an election looming, our policy symposium will be focused on the COVID-normal recovery: “What policies are needed to ensure a gender equitable COVID-normal economy?”.

  • A presentation on, “Lifting diversity and inclusion in economics: How the Australian Women in Economics Network (WEN) put the evidence into action” by Rebecca Cassells (co-authored with: Leonora Risse, Danielle Wood, and Duygu Yengin) at the workshop dinner at the Monster Salon (for in-person participants only).

  • A three hour virtual course on, Women’s labor market, institutions and social norms, on 9 February 2022 from 9AM – 12PM (separate registration required).

The final program will be made available in January 2022 on the workshop’s website and via Oxford Abstracts for registered participants.

We look forward to welcoming you all in Canberra and virtually, further expanding our community of researchers.

Finally, we would like to thank our generous gold tier sponsors for their contributions to the workshop: ANZ, the Department of the Prime Minister and Cabinet, the Parliamentary Budget Office, the Productivity Commission, the Economic Society of Australia – ACT, and the Tax and Transfer Policy Institute.
