Economics Department Events


Wednesday, April 25, 2018

Co-sponsored by the Department of Economics and Women's and Gender Studies Program, Dr. Brandon Vick will discuss the gender wage gap, both in general and within the Appalachia region.

Abstract of the talk: Much confusion swirls around the gender wage gap. How much less are women paid? Will it affect me? Aren’t men actually falling behind? Dr. Vick will describe current research on the subject, including how education, psychology, and time all play a role in the gender gap. He will also present his work on the gender gap across Appalachia, showing the links between geography, occupation, and the size of the gender gap.

Please consider attending this important talk. Attendance vouchers will be available.
