A lecture by Baroness Alison Wolf of King's College London on gender roles and the labor market.


Our societies struggle with the clash between work and family demands. Are changing gender roles the answer? Could we "re-engineer" our companies? Or must professional success, for women and men, rest on deep economic inequalities? With an introduction by Yasmine Ergas, Director, Gender & Public Policy Specialization, please join us for a lecture and reception with Baroness Wolf of King's College London, author of The XX Factor.


Reception to follow.

In collaboration with the SIPA Gender and Public Policy Specialization, SIPA Management Specialization, SIPA Economic and Political Development Concentration, and the Columbia Economics Program for Economic Research.
