Yale University economics professor Ebonya Washington PPAI '95 will present evidence that child gender can impact a variety of behaviors and discuss why this finding is important for policy.
Ebonya Washington is Professor of Economics at Yale University. She received a BA in public policy from Brown in 1995 and a PhD in economics from MIT in 2003. She is a political economist interested in how low-income and minority populations use the political system to achieve economic ends.
