UK WEN: Partnership Opportunities

The UK Women in Economics Network (UK WEN) is a key initiative within the work of the RES Women’s Committee.

Since its launch in February 2023, UK WEN has gathered significant pace, creating a ‘movement’ within the profession. We are hugely grateful to the partner organisations that have supported our activities to date. To maintain this momentum and continue to support women in economics, we are seeking ongoing sponsorship from partners.   

Why become a UK WEN partner?

Becoming a UK WEN partner brings highly visible brand association with supporting diversity and gender equality within Economics. This brings many benefits, including:  

  • Being seen as an employer who is committed to furthering diversity, equality and inclusion efforts within the Economics discipline.
  • Enhancing the ability to attract and retain top talent.
  • The opportunity to host senior women economists at an event.
  • Digital brand awareness on the UK WEN web pages, in e-comms, and on social media channels.
  • The opportunity to speak at relevant UK WEN events.
  • Guaranteed in-person places at relevant UK WEN events.
  • The opportunity to contribute and influence event content.
  • The opportunity to network with women economists.
  • The potential to contribute relevant content for the UK WEN newsletter and RES blog.

What are the options for partnering with UK WEN?

This is a 12-month partnership with UK WEN at an investment of £3,000.

We are interested in developing long-term, bespoke partnerships with institutions that are keen to provide longer-term support to UK WEN. Please contact Adam Bryan to express your interest in discussing this further (a.bryan@res.org.uk).

  • Coming soon: UK WEN Jobs Board

We will soon be launching a UK WEN Jobs Board – giving organisations the opportunity to advertise relevant job vacancies with our UK WEN mailing list. This will be via our website, our newletter and our social media channels. To register your interest to take advantage of this opportunity, and be the first to receive details, please contact Victoria Parkinson (programmesofficer@res.org.uk)  

With the support of partners, UK WEN can continue to support the career development of UK-based women in economics across the pipelines and expand our initiatives to provide further support and visibility of women economists and their interests across all sectors.
