WESS (Women in Economics Students' Society) is a University of Melbourne based student club (founded in 2020) encouraging the pursuit of careers in economics among women and increased representation.
WESS encourages women to immerse themselves in the discipline, while providing them with the knowledge needed to establish a successful career in economics. We believe an integral element of this is facilitating discussions, spreading awareness, representation in the workforce for women in economics and getting students involved in our events catered specifically to those looking to succeed in Economics.
