About CWEN/RFE

Mission Statement

CWEN/RFE was founded in 1990 to address the networking needs of women economists and to promote the advancement of women in the economics profession.

As a network of economists, the objectives of CWEN/RFEs are:

  1. To create an opportunity for women economists to meet and discuss issues of common interest at the Canadian Economics Association meetings.
  2. To ensure appropriate representation of women economists and their interests in professional activities and forums.
  3. To improve employment opportunities for Canadian women economists.
