Gender and Diversity in Economics

Shelly Lundberg, Leonard Broom Professor of Demography , University of California Santa Barbara

Brought to you by

Gender

Women face many challenges when it comes to furthering careers in the sciences, and economics is no different. With only two women having ever won a Nobel Prize in Economic Sciences (and both of those given in the last decade), we ask the question of why there is such a dearth of women in this field, and why is it important to have them? To discuss this, we spoke to Shelly Lundberg, Leonard Broom Professor of Demography, University of California Santa Barbara.
