UK WEN: Peer Learning Sets (PLS)

Peer Learning Sets fall within the UK Women in Economics Network ‘Action’ Initiative. The aim of the ‘action’ initiative is to drive positive change through peer-learning and best practice sharing amongst women.

Peer learning sets will achieve this by facilitating discussion on a shared challenge or development aim. The objective is for peer groups to discuss and implement practical solutions to the shared issue, thus bringing about personal, professional and/or cultural change in economics within and across institutions/sectors.   

We are offering the opportunity for 25 women economists to become a Peer Learning Set Facilitator where you will receive training and support to develop and run a PLS. The form to apply is at the bottom of this page. 

The training session will be held virtually in early March 2024. To apply to join the training and become a PLS facilitator, please complete this form.
