The objectives for the Women in Economics Network are to:
WEN membership is open to anyone with an interest in economics and/or gender equality issues. We welcome economists and other professionals from any sector including academia, government, business, community groups and teaching, or members of the public who share WEN's objectives.
You can become a member of WEN by joining your State/Territory branch of the Economic Society of Australia (ESA) and opting into WEN as part of your ESA membership. WEN membership is free with your ESA membership.
Men are welcome and encouraged to support WEN's cause by becoming a member of WEN. Some of WEN's activities are targeted specifically for women (such as the Women in Economics Retreat, mentoring programs and media register) but most of WEN's events are open to all participants.
WEN offers a range of opportunities and resources for our members:
WEN is run at a national level by the WEN National Committee and at a local level by State/Territory WEN branches.
