2014 Harcourt Lecture: Sustaining the Glass Ceiling through Gender Differences in Beliefs and Behaviour

Presenter: 
Professor Lise Vesterlund
Date and time: 
1 October, 2014 - 17:45 - 18:45

The University of Adelaide School of Economics presents the 2014 Harcourt Lecture, 'Sustaining the Glass Ceiling through Gender Differences in Beliefs and Behaviour' presented by Professor Lise Vesterlund.

This year's lecture will discuss gender inequality in labour market outcomes, despite significant female educational advances. The lecture will argue that these differences in part may be attributed to men and women differing in their response to the circumstances they face in the work place.

Professor Lise Vesterlund is the Mellon Professor of Economics at the University of Pittsburgh. She holds a B.A. in Economics from the University of Copenhagen, and an M.A. and Ph.D. in Economics from the University of Wisconsin. Her research focuses on understanding how and why we give to charity, and on why men are more successful than women in climbing the corporate ladder.
