Women in Economics Symposium


Are you a woman majoring in economics? If so, you should attend the Second Annual Women in Economics Symposium sponsored by the Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis. Participants will discuss the issues and opportunities in the field and ACRE will be providing travel scholarships for Arkansas students to attend. The event is free, but registration is required by Feb. 22.

In addition to time to network and discuss career options, the event will offer a review of research and data on women in economics; panels and discussion sessions featuring women from various career fields who majored in economics; and unique perspectives from leaders in the field.
Featured speakers include: Loretta Mester, president and CEO at the Federal Reserve Bank of Cleveland, Amanda Bayer, professor of economics at Swarthmore College, a leading researcher on the topic of diversity in economics, and Kate Warne, principal and investment strategist at Edward Jones.
