Women in the New Economy


The goal of the "Women in the New Economy" Hub is to connect women, women identifying and feminised people across the network, share stories and experiences, and amplify the amazing role that women play in building, visioning and shaping the new economy. It is also a place to share experiences from other women, women identifying and feminised peoples across the globe contributing to new economies and to develop our shared understanding of feminist contribution to new economy thinking and practise.
