Brandeis IBS Professor honored for advancing women in economics profession
Anne Carter, Fred C. Hecht Professor of Economics Emerita at Brandeis International Business School, has been honored for her work by the American Economic Association’s Committee on the Status of Women in the Economics Profession (CSWEP). Professor Carter has been selected as the 2008 recipient of the Carolyn Shaw Bell Award.
The Carolyn Shaw Bell award has been given annually by the CSWEP since 1998. The award was created as part of the 25th Anniversary celebration of the founding of the CSWEP. The award honors a recipient who has furthered the status of women in the economics profession, through example, achievements, increasing our understanding of how women can advance in the economics profession, or mentoring others.
“Ten years after the establishment of the Carolyn Shaw Bell Award there are now many distinguished women economists. But it was pioneers like Anne Carter who paved the way for later generations of women in economics,” said Rachel McCulloch, Rosen Family Professor of International Finance and Chair, Department of Economics at Brandeis.
At Brandeis, Professor Carter teaches courses on technological and economic change and on work in the global business environment. A former dean of the faculty at Brandeis, she has also taught at Harvard University, Brooklyn College, and Smith College. She holds a Ph.D. from Harvard University.
