Federal Reserve Gender and the Economy Conference

November 8, 2021 @ 9:30 am - 4:00 pm CST

Partner Event

This symposium for researchers, policy analysts, and practitioners will explore how gender and opportunity influence economic and financial outcomes over an individual’s lifetime – from formative years and early career into establishing households and through retirement. Special emphasis will be placed on evidence-based strategies that remove the barriers to and achieve the benefits of a more inclusive economy, particularly as the nation moves into a post-pandemic recovery.

Women Employed’s Sharmili Majmudar, EVP of Policy and Organizational Impact, will participate in the panel for Session II: Education and Early Career – Early financial decisions, such as opting to take on student loans or choosing a career path, can have an impact on an individual’s income stability and wealth building over time. Often, these decisions are made with limited information and/or narrowed options due to cost, location, or other factors. This panel will explore how these early career choices can have a bearing on an individual’s employment outcomes and ability to build wealth.
