New ECONtribute podcast


ECONtribute launches their first podcast “ECONtribute – Der Wirtschaftspodcast”, now available on Spotify, Soundcloud and Deezer (in German).

In monthly episodes of approximately 30 minutes Carolin Jackermeier, Junior Science Editor at ECONtribute discusses the most exciting topics of ECONtribute’s research and provides insights into the work of the Cluster of Excellence. In the first series, the podcast deals with questions of #gender in the world of economics. Are women being discriminated against in economic research? Do social norms still force mothers into traditional gender roles nowadays? And do women get worse advice than men in financial counselling?

Listen to the first episode with Professor Guido Friebel, head of the Department of Human Resources at Goethe University in Frankfurt. He analysed the gender distribution in European economics research institutions and identified major international differences. Together they talk about barriers in academic careers in economics, gender equality and women’s quotas.
