Women in Economics

The Women in Economics Network (WEN) was formed in 2017 to promote and support the careers of female economists in Australia, and create a more gender balanced, equitable and inclusive economics profession.

WEN’s objectives are to:

  • professionally connect and support the career development of women in economics
  • increase the representation of women at all levels of the economics profession
  • promote public contributions by female economists
  • encourage the next generation of women to study economics

Find out more about WEN’s activities, resources and events on the WEN website, Twitter, LinkedIn and Facebook pages.

I am proud to be part of the passionate team of women who have brought the vision of WEN to life and are helping to elevate the contributions of our female economists in Australia – in the name of gender equity and for the betterment of the profession overall.
