SAI Webinar

Lakshmi Iyer, Associate Professor of Business Administration, Harvard Business School

Women lag behind men on many metrics across the world (health, education, wages), including political representation. Professor Iyer will discuss two major questions:
•Does electing women to political office make any difference?
•Given that women comprise only 21.4% of national parliaments across the world, how can women’s representation in political office be increased?

She will review some of her work based on data from India on both of these questions. The results are relevant both for other countries and for other disadvantaged groups.

8:30 AM in Cambridge, 5:30 PM in Pakistan, 6 PM in India, 6:30 PM in Sri Lanka & Bangladesh
