Conference theme for the GGEC19 is sustainability and quadruple bottom line reporting (economic, environment, social + gender). This is a significant subject which can be applied to all aspects of Gender Economics through the areas of Policy, Economics, Environment, and Innovation and Health. Each component of the conference has relevance to economics and gender - note Gender Economics is NOT just about women but about how we exploit gender for profit or some sort of economic gain. Gender Economics can also be helpful when looking at innovation and how gendered thinking impacts innovation in relation to business models.
