UK Women in Economics Network (UK WEN)

The mission of UK WEN is to support career development of UK-based women in economics across the pipelines by monitoring representation, by providing support for women in their careers as economists, and by enhancing the visibility of women economists and their interests across all sectors

UK WEN is open to all and there is no membership fee. Please sign up to our mailing list if you are interested in hearing about future events organised by UK WEN.  

We are also looking for volunteers and experienced economists from all backgrounds who would be interested in supporting UK WEN by acting as speakers at our future events or mentors to women in early careers, or lead one of our proposed initiatives. If you are interested in being involved in such a capacity, please indicate your interest when joining the mailing list.
