The Women in Economic Network (WEN) is proud to announce the second edition of an online national mentoring initiative aimed at supporting women economists in academia across Australia.

This is an initiative targeted at supporting ECR women, such as post-docs, and levels B and C.

As part of this initiative, WEN has organised a teaching session in 2023 and another 3 mentoring sessions throughout 2024. These sessions will cover a range of essential topics, including research, teaching, and service, and are open to any ECR woman. We are thrilled to announce the second series with a session focused on research:

Note that only the first 30 minutes of the panel discussion will be recorded.
