The Preliminary Program for the 2022 Australian Gender Economics Workshop is now available.  Please note, due to COVID this event will now be held virtually only.

 The workshop, co-hosted by the Women in Economics Network and the Australian National University, will be held during Australian Eastern Daylight Time (Sydney/Melb/Canberra) from Thursday, 10 February to Friday, 11 February 2022.

 In addition, one of our keynote speakers, Professor Núria Rodríguez-Planas, will offer a 3-hour virtual course on “Women’s Labour 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-PlanasCity 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?”. We’ll hear from our distinguished panelists: Claudia Maclean (Women’s Legal Centre ACT), Alicia Payne, MP (Federal Member of Parliament for Canberra) and Danielle Wood (CEO of the Grattan Institute)  
  • 3-hour virtual course on, Women’s labour market, institutions and social norms,on 9 February 2022 from 9AM – 12PM (separate registration required).
