What's in store?

Covid-19 and the cost of living crisis has drawn attention to the varied work of economists, however misconceptions around the subject and the stereotypical career opportunities available in the field still exist.

Designed for post-16 year old students, this event aims to help students find out more about economics as a subject and discover the range of career opportunities available to them.

The panel of female economists will share:

  • Their experience of studying economics at university
  • The key transferable skills that they think are important for studying economics at university
  • Their current role and what it involves.

Participants will also have the opportunity to put their own questions to the panel.

I liked the diverse panel, on top of it all women. Everyone with amazing experience to share. One from banking sector other from civil service, professor, advisor, students, amazing. I loved how every speaker openly shared their definition of economics, area of interest, and what skills are most essential to purse a career in economics. What a way for me to conclude Women's day with you all.
