Women in Economics: Advancing Research in Economics

In June 2020 CEPR launched a new virtual seminar series WE_ARE Women in Economics: Advancing Research in Economics, where junior women present their work and get constructive feedback from their peers and from senior economists. The seminars take place bi-weekly on Mondays and last for one hour (40-minutes talk, 20-minute discussion). For those interested, after the discussion, breakout rooms are kept open for 10 minutes, to give participants the opportunity to network. The seminar series aims to bring together junior and senior women in economics and to contribute to building an active and cooperative CEPR women in the economics community.
