As part of the forthcoming Australian Gender Economics Workshop 2022, one of the keynote speakers, Professor Núria Rodríguez – Planas, from the City University of New York, Queens College, will give a 3 hour virtual course, via Zoom, on “Women’s Labour Market, Institutions and Social Norms.”

The course description is provided below and more details are also available on the workshop website.

Course registration will close on 3 February 2022 (or when capacity is reached).


Course Description: Since the 1990s, adult women’s and men’s convergence in labour force participation rate and earnings has stalled and even reversed in many OECD countries (Goldin 2014Blau and Kahn 2006; and England, Levine and Mishel 2020). This course will explore different factors that explain what is holding women back. The course will begin by analyzing how motherhood impacts women's earning trajectories. It will then move to better understand the penalties associated with alternative work arrangements such as temporary contracts, or part-time work. The course will then analyze the effectiveness of different policies aiming at improving women's labour force attachment. We will conclude by exploring how social norms and institutions intertwine and contribute to this lack of gender convergence.

To better facilitate interaction among participants and the convenor, the course will be capped at 30 participants.*

Finally, we also would like to thank our generous gold tier sponsors for their contributions to the Australian Gender Economics Workshop and this associated course: ANZ, the Department of the Prime Minister and Cabinet, the Parliamentary Budget Office, the Productivity Commission, the Economic Society of Australia – ACT, the Tax and Transfer Policy Institute, and the Women in Economics Network.
