Through the ‘WiE Inspire‘ series, we hope to bring together women academics and professionals in various fields to share their work and experiences with young economists. The second online ‘WiE Inspire’ is a panel discussion with Dr. Doris Pfeiffer and Dr. Katharina Blankart on navigating the field of health economics. We will discuss the speaker’s work and research in detail, and prospective job opportunities in the field. We will also talk about the German health care system at large, focusing on health insurance and pharmaceutical markets. Furthermore, we will briefly discuss the intersection between their work and gender identity.
