Business and Engineering Center BE3024

Why is gender inequality so severe and persistent in economics? What is being done to address the issue?

The Romain College of Business will be offering events on Tuesday, October 19, and Wednesday, October 20, in celebration of Women’s Entrepreneurship Week and the entrepreneurial spirit. All events are free and open to everyone. Business professionals will be sharing their expertise at the following event: 

Women in Economics Lecture - Registration is encouraged

Presenters: Dr. Daria Sevastianova, Associate Professor of Economics and Jailine McElroy, a Senior in Marketing and Economics and Women in Economics Club President
Wednesday, October 20, 1:15 PM - 2:15 PM 
USI Business and Engineering Center, Room 3024

 

While women and men are equally represented in many majors and careers, economics is a social science that has a gender problem. Women major in economics and go into careers in economics at 30% rate of men. The problem is greater for minority women, who account for 10% or less. Why is gender inequality so severe and persistent in economics? What is being done to address the issue? Have we made improvements? Join Dr. Daria to learn about these topics and USI’s Women in Economics Club, and meet Jailine, who will share her pathbreaking work to improve diversity and equity in economics.
