As an undergraduate student organization, Women in Economics addresses the gender disparities within economics. We cultivate an empowering community for all students who express an interest in the field of economics. We invite our members to engage on an interdisciplinary level with economics while promoting diversity and inclusivity. Women in Economics provides members with skills-building opportunities, empowerment in the field, and a connection with faculty and graduate students.
