Equality, Diversity and Inclusion at Work: Webinar 2 – Gendered Constructions of Risk in the Financial Sector

About this event

This is the second of five webinars on equality, diversity and inclusion based on research in the Organisational Behaviour & HRM Department at Nottingham University Business School.

The webinars will be 60-minutes long and will include a 20-minute talk, a 20-minute panel discussion with University of Nottingham alumni and industry practitioners, and a 20-minute audience Q&A. It will be presented on MS Teams.

Dr Jane Nolan and Professor Laurie Cohen will consider the case of the financial sector, where it is often assumed that there are behavioural differences between women and men in their relation to risk and uncertainty. But do these perceptions really represent the working lives of women in the sector? We discuss some of these ideas drawing on insights from interviews with women working in investment and asset management.

This event is part of the ESRC Festival of Social Science 2021 and was made possible thanks to funding from the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC), which is part of UK Research and Innovation (UKRI).
