Barcelona GSE Women in Science 2021

Celebrating research by women in the Barcelona GSE Alumni community for Women in Science Day 2021

In honor of the United Nations' annual International Day of Women and Girls in Science (February 11), the Barcelona Graduate School of Economics invited the women in the Barcelona GSE Alumni community to participate in the Barcelona GSE Women In Science challenge on social media.

To participate, alumnae posted on LinkedInTwitter, or Facebook about a project or paper they've worked on and then nominated fellow alumnae to take the challenge as well using the hashtag #BGSEWomenInScience. 

Ilaria Vigo '16 (Economics of Public Policy) helped organize the initiative. In her post, she called the colleagues she nominated "brilliant women with whom I’ve shared the BGSE life."

The projects that alumnae shared for the Women in Science challenge reveal the many ways in which they are using their training from the Barcelona GSE Master's programs and the PhD programs in the Barcelona GSE community to find answers to today's most pressing questions:
