We are delighted to announce the renowned economist and journalist Soumaya Keynes as our next guest speaker!

Soumaya is currently the trade and globalization editor at The Economist, and the co-host of a podcast covering economic trade named "Trade Talks".
She attended Trinity Collège Cambridge for both her undergraduate and master's degrees, completing her Bachelor of Arts in 2010 and MPhil in Economics in 2011.

Her career in economic research began as policy advisor for Her Majesty's Treasury in London, looking at banking and credit. Afterward, she worked at the institute for Fiscal Studies, focusing on pensions and public finances before joining the Economist in June 2015.

She began by writing the Free Exchange column, which provides a literature review of recent papers in economics and was promoted to US economics and trade editor in June 2018.

Furthermore, she has hosted and chaired events, such as the 2019 World Trade Symposium in New York. Additionally, she's given multiple interviews both about her work and her transition form research to journalism.

Please join us with Kate on Thursday the 27th of January 6-7pm on our Facebook live. You'll be able to ask questions in our Q&A session towards the end of the event, so this is not one you want to miss!

In exciting news, Assumptions will be launching a summer collaborative project!

Inspired by the recent women’s rights protests, this project will be a deep dive into the female economy.

Women’s experiences in the working world have always been an important topic of conversation, and one that’s increasingly relevant to young professionals and students alike.

This project would be a series of short articles (between 400-800 words) published on a biweekly basis, through the summer holidays. Each contributor would be expected to write one article on a topic of their choosing, to do with women’s economic rights and market interests.

We want as many people to contribute as possible! Whether you would like to talk about women in the film industry, unpaid domestic labour or even the market for work heels - whatever it is, it has a place in the project!

Just fill in this form (https://forms.gle/sdaNUKaabmZj3gjd9) and we’ll get back to you soon!
