The Women in Economics Network is supported by the national Women in Economics Committee (the WEC) and committees in most state and territories. Committees are made up of women from the public and private sectors, academia and teaching. 

The WEC is an initiative of the Economic Society of Australia, reflecting the support of the Society's Central Council for the WEN. The WEC is responsible for coordinating WEN national activities. The WEC is comprised of the Chairs of the Women in Economics state committees plus special members. Committee members are listed below:
