"Women in Economics and STEM: Why are they underrepresented and does it matter?"  

A talk by Ann L. Owen, Henry Platt Bristol Professor of Economics at Hamilton College

Professor Owen will draw on her experiences in various leadership roles on the Committee on the Status of Women in the Economics Profession and on findings from pedagogical and institutional research. The talk will focus on reasons for the underrepresentation of women in economics and STEM fields, the impact of this underrepresentation, and potential strategies to encourage women and promote opportunities for them in male-dominated fields.
