ABOUT THE EVENT 

The focus of this event will be Feminist economics & Alternative women-led models: practical lessons for business and finance. Specifically, we will consider:

  • What is feminist economics?
  • What can business and finance learn from alternative economic / financial models?
  • How are alternative models being used around the world?

 

More information:

The event is a Zoom session in an 'open space' context. To learn more about how open space gatherings are done, please see one or more of the following:

 

The session will open with centering in group presence and check-in. The agenda will then be defined by session attendees collectively. The cohosts will facilitate this process, including scheduling the agenda items for discussion. Centering, check-in, and setting the agenda should take about 30-minutes, followed by two 30-minute discussions about the items on the agenda. The number of attendees will guide how that will be done, e.g., using breakout rooms or not. A short break will follow the opening centering and check-in, and another will be taken between the two discussion sessions. 

Attendees are not required or expected to have any professional, academic, or other experience or expertise in business or finance in general..  

 

The day before the event (on 9 March 2021), the Zoom link will be sent to all who select "Going" or "Interested."

  • I'm looking forward to this, and thanks for the reminder you just sent Viviana Jiménez .

    I wondered whether, in passing, you might be interested in the context of feminist business models, in the work of my cousin Charlotte Webb, who founded the Feminist Internet project (https://feministinternet.com/about/). There's a little about her here - https://www.arts.ac.uk/creative-computing-institute/people/charlott... -  and a talk from her here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bBQOyvNhWJY. Might be of passing interest... :)
