Key note speaker:​

  • Anne Boring - Assistant Professor at the Erasmus School of Economics, Erasmus University Rotterdam. Head of the Women in Business Chair at Sciences Po, Paris (LIEPP & PRESAGE)

Anne Boring will talk us through her recent research on how COVID-19 lockdowns have exposed a shift towards more traditional beliefs in gender norms, i.e. less equal gender norms. Anne’s results suggest that beliefs in more unequal gender norms seem to be related to increases in economic uncertainty caused by the health crisis. Furthermore, she will discuss gender diversity in firms and more specifically the main diversity policies (gender quotas, mentoring and network programmes, diversity training to change firm culture, and family friendly policies) that have been implemented and their effectiveness, shortcomings, as well as potential future steps that could help guide policy.

Panel:

 

Moderated by Dr Nicole Rosenboom (competition economist, Oxera)
