In partnership with the Centre for Economic Policy Research, CEPR, an independent, non-profit network of more than 1,300 economists.
Women in Economics is an expansion of our ongoing Nobel Perspectives program, which to date has grown into the largest repository of digital content on award winning economic theories.
The aim of Women in Economics is to focus on economists who are in the middle of their careers, but have already made a major impact in their fields. With fresh thinking and diverse perspectives, they are paving the way to influence the current and next generation of leaders and economists.
In everyday life we all have to deal with economics
The missing women in economics have become an issue, essentially because their share in academic positions is not progressing. It’s a good time to showcase exceptional female economists and their research to encourage others.
UBS and the Centre for Economic Policy Research, CEPR, have ensured a sound and rigorous selection process for the program.
Each month Women in Economics will showcase a new economist. A jury of three CEPR representatives will oversee the selection process, appointing a list of leading researchers and policy makers from a variety of economic-related fields. The process is based on the work done by the economists in terms of both contribution and impact, as well as the creativity of their research. Get to know the committee below.
