The WEN SA Committee is proud to launch the third year of our university Mentoring Program, running from October 2021 to August 2022.
The WEN Mentoring Program provides female students studying economics with the opportunity to be mentored by experienced economists. This aims to empower students in beginning their careers and to provide insight into life as an economist. The program further aims to strengthen the linkages between economists in South Australia and to engage with the next generation of female economists.
Female-identifying university students studying economics at both an undergraduate and Masters level are invited to submit an application to be assigned a mentor for the 2020-2021 program. The application process is competitive, with limited places available. Please see the document below for more information and details on eligibility.
Further information on the program can be found here.
