IWD – Silvia Griselda and Elyse Dwyer Interview

To celebrate International Women Day, Elyse Dwyer from e61 Institute sat down with some of our favourite female economists to learn about their experience as women in the field of economics.

Here she talks to e61 Research Manager Silvia Griselda about her favourite women economists, how policy makers can encourage more women to pursue a career in economics and how historical labour practices impact current gender norms. 

Silvia also outlines some of her own research on the gender differences in standardised assessments, and the implication for the academic and career outcomes for women. 

Please keep an eye out for more great interviews featured this week with Pelin Akyol and Stefanie Fischer, Professor at Monash University.
