Percentage of Female Doctoral Students and Faculty Members
in Departments with PhD programs, 1994-2018
Our goal is to raise every line in this graph.
The objective of the Women in Economics at LA (WEcon@LA) group is to increase the share of women involved in each level of the economics profession, from college majors to first year PhD students to Full Professors. We help facilitate mentorship opportunities for female students at both the PhD and undergraduate level, help organize seminars for women to share their research, and encourage community building among women in the department.
Please note that WEcon@LA is an informal student-run group and the content contained here does not represent the opinions of the UCLA Economics Department or UCLA more broadly.
