The Playing Field in Academia: Why Are Women Still Underrepresented?

The Forum for Research on Gender Economics (FROGEE) together with the Centre for Economic Analysis (CenEA) and the Stockholm Institute of Transition Economics (SITE) invites academic papers to a conference held in Warsaw, entitled: “The playing field in academia: Why are women still underrepresented?”


Women continue to be underrepresented in every stage of their 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 invites academic papers to a conference held in Warsaw on 21-22 June 2023.

The conference is organised as part of the FREE Network initiative FROGEE, supported by the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency (Sida). It will combine contributed sessions, invited lectures and policy discussions.
