The third edition of the Australian Gender Economics Workshop (AGEW) will take place in Brisbane at the Queensland University of Technology. The aim of AGEW is to foster a community of economic researchers who can collectively contribute to the evidence base needed to guide the pursuit of more gender equitable outcomes in society. AGEW will include a program of research presentations and posters and a policy symposium session. We are glad to announce Professor Shoshana Grossbard will be one of our two international keynote speakers (the second to be confirmed soon) while Professor Gigi Foster will be our Australia-based keynote speaker.
Submissions of both applied and theoretical work on any topic of gender economics are invited. The scope of topics can include (but is not limited to) labour and workplace organisation, behavioural insights, education and human capital, family and care responsibilities, household and interpersonal dynamics, mental and physical health and safety, economic growth, poverty and economic development, measures of inequality, housing, superannuation and retirement, tax and transfer settings, and the evaluation of policy interventions.
