About  Us

Women in Econ/Policy was set up in June 2020 by Prerna Kundu and Prashansa Srivastava with the aim of creating a free and inclusive space for women interested in econ, policy & development to learn and grow together.


Our vision for the organisation is for it to disrupt the status quo in favour of a culture of empathy, co-learning, and democratized access to knowledge, industry insights, skills, and people. We aim to be a professional and personal community- to provide support, share learnings and usher in a culture where the fabulous women in Economics and Policy across the world have a safe space to learn together and openly share their challenges that are unique to being a woman in the field and help each other grow.

 

We seek to make economics and economics-adjacent fields more inclusive by highlighting work by women researchers, expanding economics beyond elite colleges and networks, and creating avenues for networking and mentorship.
