External Sessions

We frequently organize sessions by women from across the research and policy spectrum. Speakers share their experiences in leading organizations, conducting cutting-edge research, and working as and with policy makers, among other things. These sessions are honest and insightful, and continuously guide and inspire us!

The sessions are organized by members of the External Sessions Working Group. Email us at womeninpolicyecon@gmail.com if you would be interested in joining the WG, would like to recommend a speaker, or help organize or moderate a session!
