Princeton Women in Economics and Policy is an organization for undergraduate women who are interested in studying or building careers in economics, politics, and public policy.
Our mission is to leverage our collective experience and knowledge to facilitate mentorship and provide resources for undergraduate women looking to lead and make an impact in these fields. With this goal in mind, we host weekly meetings and casual events, and we invite women from both inside and outside the University to speak to these themes.
Princeton has a long, illustrious history of educating and employing women who are preeminent leaders, voices, and thinkers in economics, public policy, and politics. Some of Princeton’s more well-known alumni include Queen Noor of Jordan (‘73), Sonia Sotomayor (‘76), Meg Whitman (‘77), Andrea Jung (CEO of Grameen Bank, ‘79), Anne-Marie Slaughter (‘80), Elena Kagan (‘81), Michelle Obama (‘85), Wendy Kopp (‘89), and Ellen Pao (‘91).
