“In our world, most of the problems that we have – environmental problems, wars, our ageing population, inequality in health outcomes, global poverty, the rise of populism – are rooted in economics. If you understand economics, you can be not just an observer, but a participant in dealing with those challenges”
WEN is passionate about inspiring and informing the next generation students about the career opportunities that are available in economics. If you’re a teacher or a career guidance officer planning a career event at your school, we would be delighted to arrange for our economists to speak to your students.
WEN also hosts several student-tailored events throughout our events calendar. Please reach out to WEN Committee in your state or territory to find out what events they have planned.
WEN encourages schools, universities, teachers and career guidance officers to make use our career resources to help inform and inspire students.
WEN gives permission for our resources - including the WEN video and career booklet - to be used for educational and career advice purposes, with the acknowledgement that these materials have been produced by the Women in Economics Network.
