The Royal Economic Society is pleased to share the new gender monitoring report from the RES Women’s Committee – Report on the status of women in academic economics within the UK.
The research finds that overall female representation in academic economics improved steadily over the 10 academic years ending in 2021/22, growing by over 6 percentage points to just under 30%, or a ratio of almost 1 in 3. Gender convergence in representation happened at a faster pace in junior and mid-seniority positions than it did at the top. The report also covers findings on gender pay gap and the leaky pipeline.
