GGEC19 Global Gender Economics Conference
Challenging Economics, Society and Gender
RMIT University, Melbourne Australia
23-24 October 2019
Two Days of Powerful Talks
23-24 October 2019
The Centre for Gender Economics in conjunction with RMIT University present the GGEC19 conference in Melbourne, October 2019. Our theme is sustainability, and quadruple bottom line reporting (economic, environment, social + gender) and will include both an Academic and Industry stream with exciting speakers selected to challenge your thinking around gender, economics and social environments.
We will explore #GenderEconomics through the areas of Policy, Economics, Environment, and Innovation and Health with each component of the conference having relevance to economics and gender. Gender Economics is NOT just about women but about how we exploit gender for profit or some sort of economic gain. Gender Economics can also be helpful when looking at innovation and how gendered thinking impacts innovation in relation to current business models.
About the Gender Economics Challenge
What is the GE Challenge?
Challenge the status quo. Challenge traditional thinking on contemporary issues. Challenge yourself to think outside the box and develop new solutions to old problems. Gender Economics forces us to view existing thinking on economic policy by examining it in conjunction with contemporary society, gender and culture.
Our second conference, the GGEC19 combines both Industry and Academic perspectives on #GenderEconomics with a focus on Resilience and Sustainability.
Not just a 'talk fest', the GGEC19 is a working conference, giving you an opportunity to engage in discussion of the themes. Backed by academic research (presented on Day 1), you will be challenged to think, discuss and develop solutions over the course of the two-day conference. You will leave with tools to challenge you to 'put your hand up' and facilitate change, with key solutions being further developed as policies or programs for the future.The #GGEC19 will look at the concept of quadruple bottom line reporting (economic, environment, social + gender). We will discuss issues like;
the relevancy of current business models given the many 'new economies' as a result of massive social change including, the rise of nationalism and anti-statism contrasted with the increased visibility and acceptance of gender identities that challenge traditional gendered norms
how contemporary policies are effected and impacted by gender and gender stereotypes and how economics itself can be a negative impact on progress
Gender Economics can be applied to all aspects of Policy, Economics, Environment, Innovation, Health and society. Gender Economics is NOT about women but about how we exploit people through their gender for profit. Gender Economics gives us the tools to analyse differently, uncovering the ways in which economic policy has been founded on the relationship between economics, policy and society. Are you up for the challenge?
The GGEC19 will bring inspirational industry and academic speakers from across the globe to bring Gender Economics to life. Selected Academic and Industry papers will be published in one of the following journals, :"International Journal of Gender Economics", (2021), and "Contemporary issues in Business and Government", (2020)
Submit a Speaker Proposal or Academic Paper
