About UK WEN

The UK Women in Economics Network (UK WEN) was set up by the Royal Economic Society’s Women’s Committee in 2022.

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

We want to help close the gap in the representation of women in economics across academia and the public and private sectors; and we offer a wide range of opportunities and resources for individual members as well as institutional partners.

We do that by:
  • Working together with existing networks and initiatives that seek to improve the status of women in economics;
  • Campaigning for equal representation and pay for women in economics in academia, the public and private sectors;
  • Organising activities and events for members of UK WEN.
