This two day workshop offers a well-grounded and practically oriented introduction into this sophisticated data source. Participants will be introduced to the content of the study, its data-structure, sample selection and weighting strategy and they will be provided with an overview over the study documentation. Additionally we will discuss the specific potentials for longitudinal data analyses provided by the SOEP. In a variety of “Hands-on Sessions” participants will learn to work with SOEP data, the data-management tool Paneldata.org and documentation material and thereby mimic the entire process from identifying and finding variables containing specific information in the dataset to the creation of the final dataset for analysis and first empirical investigations. The practical part of the workshop requires familiarity with methods of empirical analysis and basic programming skills in STATA.

2nd DIW Women’s Finance Summit http://www.diw.de/sixcms/detail.php?id=diw_01.c.702205.en

More than ten years after the crisis, the financial sector is still in the midst of a far-reaching transformational process. The regulatory environment remains a headwind for financial institutions, and new technologies are changing the rules of the game. Zero interest rates and flat yield curves, in particular in Europe, deprive credit institutions of their traditional income from the credit and maturity transformation business. Populism and political uncertainty create additional challenges, curtailing investment and risk-taking. Finally, the ever-increasing focus for investors and corporations alike on topics around ESG – environmental, social and governance – and sustainability brings with it a whole new set of challenges and opportunities that need to be navigated. An important element in successfully tackling these challenges is a healthy corporate culture that allows for the necessary change to happen – including an increase in female representation and a better gender balance in corporate board rooms.

This conference will present an outlook on these developments and their implications for the financial services industry and economies at large, primarily presented by leading female exponents of the financial services industry as well as key public authorities.
