Are you a woman majoring in economics? If so, join us to discuss the issues and opportunities in the field.

In addition to time to network and discuss career options over hors d'oeuvres, the event will offer a review of research and data on women in economics; panels and discussion sessions featuring women from various career fields who majored in economics; and unique perspectives from leaders in the field.

Featured speakers include:

  • Loretta Mester, president and chief executive officer at the Federal Reserve Bank of Cleveland
  • Amanda Bayer, professor of economics at Swarthmore College, and a leading researcher on the topic of diversity in economics
  • Kate Warne, principal and investment strategist at Edward Jones

The event is free, but registration is required by Feb. 22.
