Early Career Network

Inspiring the next generation of feminist academics and researchers.

The WBG Early-Career Network (ECN) is a place for feminist researchers in academia, policymaking and the third sector to connect with their peers and with established experts.

We want to help foster the next generation of feminist academics and researchers, equipping them with the tools to influence public policy and contribute to a more gender-equal economy. This is why we are re-launching the ECN.

What we are bringing to members:

  • A peer-to-peer support network connecting early-career academics and researchers facing similar challenges;
  • Opportunities for developing skills useful to early-career researchers such as presenting research and organising events;
  • Training workshops on the publishing process, on professional life in and beyond academia, and on communicating their research to a wider audience;
  • Opportunity to engage in discussion and network with established feminist economists and other senior academics in relevant fields;
  • Getting involved in the work of the Women’s Budget Group and the opportunity to showcase your own work.
