Summary of WinE-DK's event in November 2020.


WinE-DK saw the light of day on the 20th of January 2020 when more than 30 female economists met to start a network for Women in Economics in Denmark. Our aim is to document gender differences in economics and find ways to reduce these differences. We do this by organizing events for our members as well as collaborating with other networks, such as WinE or the Nordic Female Economists Network.
