Women in Macro Conference 2022

The annual Women in Macro Conference brought together influential women economists from around the world working in the field of macroeconomics, broadly defined. The objective of the conference was to feature the high-quality work of women in a field in which they are significantly under-represented. It provided participants an informal venue to strengthen their research and build their network, particularly to women at early stages of their careers.

Recordings of the discussions will be made available following the event.
