Women in Economics Day 2017
Our third annual Women in Economics Day will take place on the 21st September 2017 and will centre around Britain's exit from the EU and the economic consequences of this, with the day being entitled: 'Brexit and the British Economy: Unique Opportunity or Unprecedented Disaster?' As ever, the day will take place at Caius and will consist of a varied line-up, with panel discussions throughout the day and a talk from our own Director of Studies in Economics, Dr Victoria Bateman. We are also delighted to welcome as a guest speaker Carolyn Fairbairn, a former Caius Economics student and now the Director General of the CBI. In addition, attendees will get to hear from Jenna Young, an exciting young entrepreneur who will be speaking about the importance of the creative industries in the British economy – and equally the challenges and opportunities young entrepreneurs face in Britain today.
The day is targeted at female students in years 12 and 13 who are interested in economics. It presents the chance for students not only to engage directly with the subject and current topical points of interest within the field, but also to find out more about studying Economics at degree level and to celebrate the work of female economists and women around the world. Further, it provides the opportunity to experience a Cambridge college environment first-hand and to speak with experts in their field.
This free event is open to all sixth form students and Economics GCSE or A-Level is not required. Places are limited to five student bookings per school, with teachers welcome to attend also. Should the event be over-subscribed, places will be allocated on a first-come, first-served basis. The day as a whole will run from 10:30-16:30 and lunch in our Hall will be provided on the day.
We at Caius do hope to welcome you to the College in September. To book for the Women in Economics Day, please fill in this form.
