CEPR is working in partnership with UBS to celebrate contributions of women in economics, with a series of portraits and video interviews on a dedicated website.
The first economist to be featured in the series is Belgian economist Marianne Bertrand, the Chris P. Dialynas Distinguished Service Professor of Economics at the University of Chicago's Booth School of Business.
Marianne's many honours and awards include the Sherwin Rosen Prize in 2012, awarded for her contributions to labour economics. Her work has covered a number of topics, including racial discrimination, CEO pay and incentives, the effects of regulation on employment, household finance and development economics.
She is a CEPR fellow in the Labour Economics, Public Economics and Development Economics Programme Areas.
You can find a list of all Marianne Bertrand's CEPR Discussion Papers here, including:
- Social Proximity and Bureaucrat Performance: Evidence from India
- Coming apart? Cultural distances in the United States over time
- Field Experiments on Discrimination
- Why home bias can decrease civil service performance
- Corporate philanthropy as a tool for political influence
- Marriage prospects of skilled and unskilled women: New evidence
The CEPR/UBS video portraits of Marianne Bertrand, as well as those of all the other economists featured in the series, are available on our YouTube channel here
This programme shines a light on quality research and policymaking from female leaders in their field. "Women in Economics" will feature videos of prominent researchers discussing their work and insights. The content is designed to appeal to non-expert audiences as well as those with a deeper understanding of economics.
Founded on the UBS “Nobel Perspectives” concept, where, since 2015, UBS has been documenting the lives and work of Nobel Prize-winning economists, this partnership will highlight great economic minds and showcase the outstanding contributions they are making. The aspiration is to underline women’s contributions to the field of economics and inspire future generations.
