Women in Economics Symposium 2021: A Free, Virtual Event

Making a Difference in the World as an Economist. A free event presented by the St. Louis Fed

Date

01/15/21

This event is for high school students, college students, educators and anyone curious about the economics profession.

There are many ways to make an impact on the world. We see everyday heroes like doctors, nurses and teachers use the tools they have to help people. Economists make a difference, too. In fact, economics gives people powerful tools to make a difference in the world. At the symposium, learn how economists can:

  • help save the environment
  • reduce income inequality
  • improve healthcare outcomes
  • help people make better decisions
  • reduce the severity of economic recessions
