WEN Research Hub

Our WEN Research Hub collates the latest analytical research concerning the representation of women in economics, and evidence into how gender diversity affects the economics profession.

This knowledge base is designed to assist the wider economic community in understanding the value of having a diversity of contributions and voices in economics, and to identify practical evidence-based strategies to achieve a stronger gender balance.
