Frequently asked questions

Currently, women and other minority groups are underrepresented on undergraduate economics courses, and as a result are underrepresented in important positions which are often held by economists. Many economists go on to work in the public sector, they work in government organisations shaping our public policy – so it’s important that a diverse range of voices are heard! Increasing diversity in the discipline,  increases the diversity in experiences and knowledge to help address social issues and bring new ideas to tackle economic challenges.  

You will be hearing from current students to alumni, and economists working in environmental policy to central banking and economic history.  

You can attend as man sessions as you wish, you don’t have to sign up for them all. We will be providing you with resources and the recording to review them your own time. What’s more, you can even reach out to our team and current UEA students if you have any questions at any time during the duration of the programme.
