3rd International BFH Conference on Discrimination in the Labor Market

This conference brings together high level academic researchers and influential policy makers to address the challenges posed by labor market discrimination. Distinguished academics will present their latest findings on different instances of discrimination (gender-, fertility-, ethnically-based or other types of labor market discrimination). Those findings will then be addressed in a policy session, whereby policy makers and other individuals with the ability to influence the implementation of actual policies will discuss concrete ways to eradicate discrimination.

Policy Session: "The Financing of Early Education and the Labor Market Participation of Women" (Participation is free of charge).

  • Sylvie Durrer, Head of Federal Office for Gender Equality
  • Irenka Krone, Co-Founder and Director of the Association PTO, Co-Founder of We Jobshare Sàrl
  • Claudine Esseiva, MP City of Bern, Liberal Party
