Showcasing women in finance – EU
Tuesday 18 December 2018 8:30 am
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 held at the Swedish House of Finance, Stockholm, Sweden. The aim of the conference is to showcase some female role models in finance and to provide an avenue for more junior researchers to receive feedback on their research and careers. The conference will be followed by a panel discussion on “Does explicit promotion of women AFFECT women negatively?”
We will start the conference with a reception on the 17th of December, 2018. We will have 5 papers, a PhD session and a panel discussion. Each presenter will have 20 minutes to present their paper, followed by a 15 minute discussion.
The discussants and panelists will be:
