Women are overrepresented among the world’s poorest and underrepresented in well-paid jobs. The new G²LM|LIC program aims to investigate the causes of gender disparities in labor markets, assess their implications for equity and efficiency, and guide policy design. The program, a joint venture between the UK Department for International Development (DFID) and the IZA Institute of Labor Economics, launched with an inaugural workshop on June 19, 2019. This report provides a summary of the discussions held on the state of existing evidence and questions for future research.
