Nuremberg Conference on Gender Economics and the Workplace, November 8-9 2018
Economics has traditionally attributed gender differences in labour market outcomes (e.g., occupation, position, pay) to demand-side factors, such as taste-based and statistical discrimination by employers, and the design of institutions (e.g. access to child care). However, recent experimental and empirical research has revealed that supply-side factors, such as psychological characteristics, negotiation patterns, and social and economic preferences, differ between men and women.
To advance our understanding of gender-related differences in the workplace and in economic decision-making, the Friedrich-Alexander-University of Erlangen-Nuremberg (FAU) and the Institute for Employment Research (IAB) are jointly organising a conference on Gender Economics and the Workplace.
