The playing field in academia: Why are women still underrepresented?

On 21-22 June, 2023, the Forum for Research on Gender Economics (FROGEE) together with the Centre for Economic Analysis (CenEA) and the Stockholm Institute of Transition Economics (SITE) will host a conference on gender inequality within the field of academia. Special guests, prof. Carlo Schwarz (Bocconi University) and prof. Sarah Smith (University of Bristol).


Women continue to be underrepresented in every stage of the academic career in many fields and they do not advance professionally at the same rate as men. A growing body of research in economics points towards social and institutional causes behind these inequalities and offers policy suggestions to address them. To discuss and disseminate recent developments in this area FROGEE together with CenEA and SITE will be hosting a conference held in Warsaw on 21-22 June, 2023. It will combine contributed sessions, invited lectures and policy discussions.

Invited lectures:

The conference is organised as part of the FREE Network initiative FROGEE, supported by the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency (Sida).
