Abstract

Despite significant gains in women’s educational attainment, gender differences in labor market outcomes persist and barriers to the advancement of women in the workplace still remain. In this talk I will discuss my portfolio of research in this area as well as speak about the pleasures and pitfalls of doing action-oriented research.
