To: Monday September 4, 2023, 7:00 pm

An exclusive Australian event exploring 'Diversity in Economics: Challenges and Rewards', featuring Professor Shelly Lundberg.

The lack of diversity in economics studies and the profession is a pressing issue in Australia. With approximately twice as many males studying economics compared to females in high school and university, and a disproportionate representation of students from high socio-economic backgrounds in tertiary economics courses, addressing this imbalance is crucial.

Shelly Lundberg is regarded as one of the world's leading demographic economists, and a global leader in the field of in gender economics. She is Distinguished Professor of Economics and the Leonard Broom Professor of Demography at the University of California, Santa Barbara.

Shelly will be sharing valuable insights into the importance and challenges of promoting diversity in economics and policy-making, and discover the potential benefits it brings to individuals, institutions, and society as a whole, in conversation with The Hon Verity Firth, AM, UTS Pro Vice-Chancellor (Social Justice and Inclusion).

This is a hybrid event, so please indicate when registering if you will be attending in person, or online (Livestream via Zoom).
