Event Details

Worldly Women Philosophers

To mark International Women’s day a panel of economists and social historians will introduce the women economists they believe we most need to learn from today, followed by a discussion about what can be done to bring diversity back into economics and economic policy making, and what mechanisms might enable a wider range of voices to be heard.

When: Wednesday 5th March 2013, 3.30-5.00pm
Where: Committee Room 12, House of Commons. (St Stephen's Entrance)

Facilitator: Cathy Jamieson MP, Shadow Minister, Treasury


With: Sonia Ruehl, Fellow in Financial and Management Studies, SOAS, 
Ioana Negru, Senior Lecturer in Economics, Lord Ashridge Business School. Introduced by: Ruth Potts and Molly Conisbee, bread, print and roses.

The panel will present a brief synopsis of the contribution of their chosen economist (or economic activist) before opening out to a broader discussion about how economics can be transformed, and the role women have to play in that process. The debate is designed to draw out practical proposals from the economic thinkers and activists of the past and those in the room, with a view to developing momentum around proposals for change. The event will also be used to identify additional contributors, and subscribers, to the Worldly Women Philosophers essay series and to add to the growing network of interest in transforming economics.
