Women in Scotland’s Economy Research Centre: A WiSER approach
Women are a driving force in Scotland’s economy. Closing the gap between men and women will improve Scotland’s economic position. However, traditional economic approaches often fail to fully recognise women’s economic contribution and their productive potential.
The Women in Scotland’s Economy (WiSE) Research Centre at GCU aims to promote and make visible women’s contribution and to boost Scotland’s economy through high quality research, consultancy and knowledge transfer activities. Our work is of interest to everyone with an interest in women’s position in and contribution to Scotland’s economy including academics, policy makers, equality practitioners, the business community and gender equality activists.
