The program

Model your future... with Deloitte Access Economics seeks to align young women studying or interested in economics and policy with young female professionals working in economic advisory and policy consulting at Deloitte Access Economics.

Deloitte Access Economics is united by a passion for economics and a belief that it can create a better future for all. We are a full service economic advisory practice operating across economic advisory, health economics and social policy, and macroeconomics. The team of highly qualified economists helps clients to see the big picture by combining economic forecasting, modelling, analysis and advisory services to enable organisations and governments to plan for the future.

The program will run for eight months from March to October, aligning with the academic calendar, and will involve at least four face-to-face meetings between the mentor and mentee.

What does this mean for you?

Ultimately, the program will support the unique goals and aspirations of each mentor relationship. This may include:

  • Expanding your interest in and understanding of economics and policy
  • Navigating university decisions and opportunities in and out of the classroom
  • Revealing how economics and the study of economics and policy can be applied in practice, including the importance of economic principles in achieving good policy
  • Uncovering lessons on transitioning from university to the workplace and/or from undergraduate to further studies 
  • Reflecting on career and academic ambitions, goals, or pathways
  • Gaining exposure to Australia’s largest and leading economic advisory practice.

About our mentors

Our mentors are young female professionals with a passion for economics and policy. Many of them have Masters or Honours in Economics, while others come from more diverse and specialised industry backgrounds such as public health, education and finance. These women are passionate about supporting others looking to enter the profession - particularly other young women.

Our goal will be to align our mentors' backgrounds with your interests and ambitions. But if you’re not sure what your goals are, then rest assured one of our inspiring mentors will help you find them!
