Join us for the launch event of LSE's Hub for Equal Representation.
There is increasing evidence of the magnitude of representation imbalances of women and minorities in the workplace and the implications for society and the economy. How big is the gap? What is the hidden cost of misallocating human resources? How to fight against child penalties?
To answer these and other related questions, experts will discuss the implications of the latest research on how to improve the representation of women and minorities in economics and the economy and the importance of setting the agenda for a fairer, more diverse and productive workplace. The goal is to provide policy-makers, business leaders and academia with insights and expertise in diversity hiring and retention.
