On November 15, 2018, we convened research scholars to discuss the latest findings on gender and the economy. The event included a keynote address from Erin Kelly, Sloan Distinguished Professor of Work and Organization Studies at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, on “Overload: How good jobs went bad and what we can do about it.”

The roundtable also included an idea blitz featuring the following research topics:
- Why are women underrepresented on boards?
