Oxford University Business Economics Programme
'The Economics of Discrimination'
(Hosted by OUBEP in partnership with P&G)
An Online Seminar on the Economic Impact of Discrimination Across Our Society.
How does parental income or the lack of, affect a person’s chances of future success? Do banks discriminate when lending? How is Technology impacting changes in the labour market and could contribute to reducing gender gaps or inequalities in access to employment? These are a few of the questions we will discuss, as we explore the findings from our latest research - including how policies translate to strategies and actions – and share real-world accounts of organisations and individuals effecting positive change.
Each lecture will be an hour, followed by a 30 minute panel discussion where delegates are encouraged to ask questions and interact with a panel of industry leaders.
