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. 

 

As of August 2021, Women in Econ/Policy  (WIEP India Association) is a registered not-for-profit in India (registered as a Section 8 company)

 

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 and share learnings. 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.
