Gender inequalities in employment and pensions - ETK Conference 2018
Helsinki, 18 May 2018 | Finnish Centre for Pensions (Kirjurinkatu 3, Helsinki)
Despite recent efforts to equalize the treatment of men and women in the pension system design in many countries, the gender gap in pensions persists. This gap contributes to old-age income inequality in Europe and beyond.

The interplay of pension and family policies has a major impact on mitigating the gender gap in pensions. This one-day conference, organized by the Finnish Centre for Pensions, will gather timely analyses on gender differences in employment and pensions.

Keynote speakers
Francesca Bettio (University of Siena)
Katja Möhring (University of Mannheim)
