Women in Economics

Sign-up for our email list sticker

The goal of the Women in Economics (WiE) organization is to support women, non-binary, and underrepresented minority students pursuing a degree in economics  and to introduce more undergraduates to the field. To do so, we showcase the wide variety of fields and opportunities in economics; bring together undergraduates, graduate students, and faculty; and host events that celebrate the achievements of  women in the discipline. We are dedicated to building a broad, supportive, and engaged community within the department.
