A workshop on The Gender Wage Gap in Europe: What Can We Learn Using Linked Employer-Employee Data? will be held at the German Federal Employment Agency, Nuremberg. The purpose of the workshop is to: Promote understanding of the role employers play in accounting for the GWG; Establish the size of the GWG across countries and how the gap varies when accounting for the identity of the employer;
Identify mechanisms, which help explain the size of the GWG, e.g. discrimination, worker sorting, worker segmentation, monopsony employer power, rent-sharing, compensating wage differentials; Discuss methodological challenges and avenues for future research for academics using LEED to investigate the GWG.
