Women in Economic Leadership- Ending the Discrimination Between Women and Men is Our Pending Priority as Societies in the XXI Century

Discussing one of the most pressing issues of our time, five leading women in the field of economics gathered Jan. 16 at IE's Aula Magna to share their thoughts and experiences with gender inequality in the event "Women and Economic Leadership,” organized by the IE School of Global and Public Affairs in collaboration with the Secretaría General Iberoamericana. The panel, which addressed topics ranging from policies and career prospects to motherhood and reproductive rights, reinforced the need to keep the gender discussion alive to push for change. The evening kicked off with Dean Manuel Muñiz highlighting the importance of gender equality in a moment where the rise of populism is bringing back an attack on women’s and minority rights, as seen in the United States, Spain’s region of Andalucía and Brazil, to name a few. “If this discussion was urgent a few years ago, now it is imperative,” Muñiz said. Panel mediator Borja Santos Porras, IE School of Global and Public Affairs Executive Director, asked the speakers to introduce themselves and make initial remarks about the issue of gender equality.
