Female leaders and voices are dramatically underrepresented in economic policy worldwide.

This lack of representation has detrimental consequences on our societies. At the same time, women’s increased inclusion presents an untapped source of enhanced economic performance, progress and innovation. Research has shown that every percentage increase in women's employment produces a significantly higher increase in a country's total GDP.

In the year of Germany’s G7 Presidency, we are pleased to invite you to join a high-level panel on The Economic Costs of Excluding Women which puts women’s participation in the economy and in the economic discourse squarely on the policy-making agenda.

Register here  https://g7-registration.de/womenineconomics for this online event on January 24th, 14:00-15:00 CET and join our international panel of leading policy-makers and advisors as we discuss how much exclusion is costing our economies and what to do about it:
