Breakfast in the Board Room: Achieving Gender Equality - Economist Claudia Goldin of Harvard University
The ACCJ Women in Business Committee will host Claudia Goldin, Henry Lee Professor of Economics at Harvard University, for a short presentation and discussion on achieving gender equality. Professor Goldin has done extensive research on the female labor force and the gender pay gap. Her 2006 paper "The Quiet Revolution" explained the evolution of women's entry to the workplace in the United States. More recently, she has shown how greater temporal flexibility could help reduce the gender pay gap.
Professor Goldin is best known for her historical work on women in the U.S. economy. Her research has covered a wide array of other topics, including immigration, New Deal policies, income inequality, technological change, education, and the reasons for the gender gap in pay. In the past several years her work has focused on college women's achievement of career and family. Her most recent project concerns the increase of women's employment in their mature and older years. She is also directing a randomized controlled trial to understand how to increase the number of female economics majors (men outnumber women 3 to 1 nationwide).
