History of the Women in Economics Symposium

This annual symposium began in 2018 at the St. Louis Fed, along with the Women in Economics Podcast Series. This initiative is designed to connect young women with accomplished women in the economics profession who share the story of their career journey—helping inspire women who wonder if economics is a profession they should (and actually could) pursue.

The St. Louis Fed continues to encourage women and underrepresented minorities to pursue economics.
