Earlier this year, Warwick hosted the UK’s first ever Women in Economics Student Workshop which brought the students’ perspective into the debate on female under-representation in the discipline. Following the event, Warwick students were inspired to establish a new Women in Economics student society. They are now looking for any Economics alumnae who might be willing to speak at a future event (albeit virtually for now) about their career journey since graduating, and to offer any tips or advice from their own experiences.
The Student Opportunity team are looking for volunteer mentors to support students from a widening participation background.

Interview with Thierry Cambray written by Melissa Chan-Cheape
"I never thought that I would be graduating at home along with my Mum and Dad. I never thought that my celebrations would consist of a family meal with polite conversation and a glass of wine. Nor did I ever think that I would be entering the job market during such a hard, uncertain time period as a global pandemic".
Centre for Education Studies alumna Anita Chagar offers advice to our new graduates.
"Don’t consider ‘The Class of 2020/The COVID-19 Cohort’ as a label for uncertainty, adversity or loss, but as a label for determination, resilience and a new way of achieving success."
WBS alumna Valerie Patrick offers advice to our new graduates.
