About the programme

Women in Economics Mentoring is a relaxed programme to connect you with a recent graduate for friendly, real-world support during this academic year.

Having been in your shoes and continued on to carve successful careers in a diverse range of industries, our alumni mentors are well equipped to offer invaluable advice based on the lessons they have learnt along the way.

From application advice, to general discussions about what it is really like to work in certain industries, and everything in-between, the programme is designed for you to define your goals and excel in your early career development plans.

This is an unmissable opportunity for just 20 students, so we look forward to seeing you at the event to tell you more. We will also introduce the mentors that you may meet on if you apply.

Why is this event only open to female economics students?

Women constitute about a third of the overall Economics student population and often top up their classes. Despite this, female economists continue to be a minority in senior and executive positions, boards and committees. Hence, the perception that female economists are under-represented in positions of power, public policy and decision-making.

This mentoring programme aims to address the issue of under-representation of women in economics by providing an opportunity to support the career development of young, female economists by matching them with successful, experienced, female economists.
