A hard hitting speech from Mary Daley of San Francisco Fed:

She narrates her personal experiences on how economics profession was always shocked to hear a woman speak in conferences. She also notes how she and San Francisco Fed have been trying to make their organisation a more woman friendly place.

Much of economics is seen as an old boys club. Lot more needs to be done to make economics inclusive.
