The UW Women in Economics group was established in 2013 to address topics of interest to women studying or working in economics-related fields. The group seeks to raise awareness of common issues and provide networking and professional development opportunities. Additionally we aim to:
- Expand opportunities for women in economics in business and academia;
- Provide networking opportunities for women in economics;
- Provide a venue to meet and discuss issues of common interest;
- Explore research topics of interest to women economists to help understand strengths and challenges;
- Promote employment opportunities and advancement of women in the economics profession.
