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.

Women are underrepresented in academia, especially in tenured positions. In the last years, the literature shedding light on the reasons for this under-representation has grown steadily.
Are you in search of fellow female researchers in economics? Or are you a journalist looking for new voices?
We have created a list of female economists with a PhD. The list is non-complete and we are happy to receive corrections.
WinE-DK is a collaboration between Economics departments at Danish Universities:
Lise Vesterlund (Uni. Of Pittsburgh): Gender imbalance in economics
Sarah Smith (Uni. Of Bristol): What can departments do?:
