Our speaker series brings together junior scholars working on finance topics in developing countries.  For the last three years, we have served as a forum for open discussion designed specifically for early stage work.

Our Mission

We launched WEFIDEV in early 2020 to support junior researchers in sharing their early stage work when meeting in-person was impossible. 

Now, as we enter our third year, we look forward to continuing to build this community and provide a forum for productive discussion.
