Center for Health and Happiness Seminar Series

January 27th, 2021 @ 1:00 pm - 1:50 pm

The Lee Kum Sheung Center for Health and Happiness invites you to “Alleviating Time Poverty: Evidence from a Pre-Registered Longitudinal Experiment,” presented by Dr. Ashley Whillans, Assistant Professor of Business Administration at Harvard Business School.

Poverty entails more than a scarcity of material resources—it also involves a shortage of time. To examine the causal benefits of reducing time poverty, Dr. Whillans and her team conducted a longitudinal field experiment in an urban slum in Kenya with a large sample of working mothers. Dr. Whillans will contextualize her findings in terms of her broader research on the well-being, as well as a new paper from her lab highlighting gender-based inequalities in the experience and enjoyment of leisure.

This seminar is part of the Lee Kum Sheung Center for Health and Happiness seminar series. The event is free and open to the public. This year’s theme is health equity and positive well-being. Please email centerhealthappiness@hsph.harvard.edu with any questions.
