Women in Economics Students’ Society (WESS)
The Women in Economics Students’ Society (WESS) was founded with the overarching aim of encouraging women to study and pursue a career in economics. We hold events and produce newsletters and other publications in pursuit of the Society’s aims. WESS has developed contacts with a number of economics organisations throughout the private, public and not-for-profit sectors and has a strong relationship with the Women in Economics Network (WEN). WESS is a welcoming and inclusive society with membership open to anyone who supports the aims of the Society, regardless of gender.
