Let's shake off the stereotypes of working in economics. You're invited to discover how exciting economics is as a field, and that it is open to all.
This project is aimed at female young people to inspire them into an area they are underrepresented, but all students are welcome to attend. The sessions are best suited to those in year 12 / L3 year 1, but year 10 and 11s are also welcome if they're interested in the subject area. Join us for an afternoon of talks and activities from inspiring women who study and work in economics. Teachers can join for CPD accredited activity that focuses on supporting students interested in economics and how to contribute to diversity in the field. There are activities for teachers and tutors and young people - you can sign up as an individual or as a whole class.
