WEN ACT EVENT Celebrating Women in Economics - Speaker: Catie Bradbear

Event Type: ESA Event

Date: Thursday Nov 16, 2023, 5:30 pm

From: Australian Capital Territory

Speaker: Catie Bradbear

Celebrating the stories of women in economics & networking event

Do you know which female economist outsold Charles Dickens? Or the woman whose contributions to John Stuart Mill's work was dismissed as a bad influence? And what about the female co-author of Nobel laureate Milton Friedman, who he credited with 'doing all the work'?

While Claudia Goldin's Nobel Prize win has recently shed light on the work of women economists, the history of economics is still predominantly dominated by male names: Smith, Ricardo, Mill, Marshall, Keynes, Hayek, Samuelson, and Friedman, to name a few. Shockingly, only one woman, Joan Robinson, was among the 125 economists featured in the Handbook on the History of Economic Analysis (2018).

 However, there are alternative narratives that offer a richer history of economics. Many brilliant women have played crucial roles in economics over the last three centuries, writing, teaching, researching, and pushing forward real-world economic issues. Their stories have often been overshadowed or forgotten.

Join us as we delve into the lives and work of women economists from the 19th and 20th centuries, including figures like Harriet Martineau, Harriet Taylor Mill, and Anna Schwartz, among others. These extraordinary women have been overlooked for far too long, and it's time to finally recognise their names and stories.

In addition to celebrating the invaluable contributions of these women, we also look forward to marking the close of 2024, providing an opportunity to meet new people and reconnect with old friends.

About our speaker: Catie Bradbear

Catie is acting Assistant Commissioner at the Productivity Commission, the Australian Government’s independent economic research and advice agency.

Catie has worked on a diverse range of inquiries while at the Commission, including a review of the Future Drought Fund, Resources Sector Regulation, the Economic Regulation of Airports, Horizontal Fiscal Equalisation, Consumer Law Administration and Enforcement, Migrant Intake, International Education Services and Tasmanian Shipping and Freight. Catie started her career at the Treasury in Canberra, followed by a stint at the Australian National University, conducting research through the National Centre for Epidemiology and Population Health.

Catie is a member of the ACT WEN Committee. She is particularly interested in the role of mentoring in retaining women in economics and worked with the ANU and the Behavioural Economics Team of the Australian Government to organise and analyse a mentoring program with female economics students at ANU. She has also recently started delving into the lives of women economists throughout history.
