INSEAD Women at Work Conference 2021
About the INSEAD Women at Work Conference
The inaugural INSEAD Women at Work Conference was held in 2018 in celebration of INSEAD’s first female MBAs, who had graduated 50 years prior. Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, we were unable to connect in person in 2020 and we are still unable to do so in 2021 (but we are still planning for a full, live, real people together version for 2022 in Abu Dhabi).
The 2021 Women at Work virtual conference, will provide a forum for researchers who study gender and the experience of women in business and related contexts to discuss the latest ideas, results, and innovative projects. Presenters will span multiple perspectives (e.g., sociology, psychology, economics, management) as well as methodologies including lab and field experiments, surveys, and analyses of qualitative and archival data.
Our goals in previous years were to increase our understanding of the root causes of gender inequality and the consequences of gender diversity, and share solution-focused methods for organisations working to develop gender balance by fully engaging and facilitating all potential talent. For 2021, we are focusing on research located at the intersections of gender issues with various identities and contexts, including but not limited to race, ethnicity, culture, national identity, education, economic inequality, industry, etc. – as they relate to gender at work. Thus, the topic of the 2021 Women at Work Conference is: “Intersections of Identities in Context.”
This year's virtual conference will take place on Tuesday, 30 March 2021, with timings:
- CA 6-8am
- NY 9-11am
- GMT 1-3pm
- CET 2-4pm
- AD 5-7pm
- SGP 9-11pm
