GWE Lunch with Professor Rebecca Diamond

UPDATE: This lunch is at maximum capacity – check back for similar events next spring!

Many people attended the faculty panels last semester hosted by Grad Women in Econ, and enjoyed getting perspective from female economists on their careers and gender in the profession. In order to continue these conversations, GWE has arranged for small-group lunch meetings with the awesome female presenters at the new Economics of Social Policy seminar at HKS. The second is with Professor Rebecca Diamond.

From Professor Diamond’s website,
