Presenters: Linda Basch, National Council for Research on Women; Melissa Fisher, Georgetown University

CEW presents a panel discussion focused on women in corporate America, both on Wall Street and in fund management. Panelists include Dr. Melissa Fisher, an assistant professor in the Department of Anthropology at Georgetown University whose forthcoming book is an ethnography of the first generation of women on Wall Street (the 1950s to the present). The second panelist is Linda Basch, president of the National Council for Research on Women. Dr. Basch along with Jacki Zehner (Women in Fund Management), examined if the recent U.S. financial system's economic meltdown might have been avoided if more women had been in the fields of hedge funds and mutual funds.
