The Luxembourg School of Finance at the University of Luxembourg and AFFECT are jointly organizing the fourth conference on Showcasing Women in Finance. This Showcase is a continuation of the series of Showcase events hosted by the University of Miami, the Stockholm School of Economics, and AFFECT.

AFFECT is a committee of the American Finance Association (AFA) that aims to promote the advancement of women academics in the field of finance. The conference will be held at the Luxembourg School of Finance, Luxembourg City.

The aim of the conference is to highlight female role models in finance and to provide an avenue for more junior researchers to receive feedback on their research and careers. The conference will be followed by a panel discussion on “What can be done to make the academic finance profession more inclusive?”

CONFERENCE FORMAT: We will have 5 papers, a PhD session, and a panel discussion. Each presenter will have 20 minutes to present her paper, followed by a 15 minute discussion. This year, Manju Puri, who is a member of the AFFECT committee, will contribute to the conference as keynote speaker and panelist.

PAPER SUBMISSIONS: Papers from all areas of finance will be considered. We encourage submissions from junior researchers and doctoral students. Papers that are at an early stage (but completed) will receive priority. Please do not submit a paper that has been accepted or close to being accepted for publication in a journal.

Further Information: To submit a paper, please send an email to (with attached PDF including author(s) information, and indication of the name of the presenting author).

All reasonable travel expenses of presenters and discussants will be covered. For additional information about the conference, you can contact the conference organizers.
