Welcome to the website for the Women in Economics Network (WEN)!
The network is linked to the Economic Society of Australia and has been formed to promote and support the careers of female economists in Australia.
Economics is a broad discipline and a key focus of the network is to increase connections between women working in the the private sector, government and academia. We are also working with teachers and academics to find ways to encourage more young women to study economics.
The WEN was officially launched on 20 March 2017 with a number of events in each state. These attracted some great publicity - see our media page for more on this.
Membership to the network is free with your membership to your local branch of the Economic Society of Australia. View the WEN membership page for more details.
