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 will officially launch on 20 March 2017. See the events page for details about the launch events in each state as well as other activities like the 2017 Women in Economics Retreat.
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.
