The Swedish House of Finance at the Stockholm School of Economics, and AFFECT are jointly organizing the third conference on Showcasing Women in Finance. This Showcase is a continuation of the series of Showcase events hosted by the University of Miami and AFFECT. AFFECT is a committee of the American Finance Association (AFA) that aims to promote the advancement of women academics in the field of finance.

The conference will be followed by a panel discussion on “Does explicit promotion of women AFFECT women negatively?”
