CSWEP at the AEA Meetings

A huge thanks to all who participated in CSWEP’s activities at the 2014 AEA Meeting: the Mentors who gave their time and expertise at our Mentoring Breakfasts for junior economists;  the Discussants, Chairs and 24 presenters who produced six excellent paper sessions (three on gender; and three on econometrics); and all those who made the presentations of the Bell Award and Bennett Prize at the CSWEP Business Meeting a joyous occasion.

CSWEP Mentoring Breakfasts

January 2014 marked the expansion of CSWEP’s Mentoring Breakfasts to two mornings during the AEA Meeting.  We extend our gratitude to the 60 mentors and 150 mentees who braved the wintry weather to attend and make these networking sessions a success.

The CSWEP Mentoring Breakfasts are informal meet and greet events at which senior economists (predominately senior women) are on hand to provide mentoring advice to junior economists. Participants are invited to drop in with questions on topics such as publishing, teaching, grant writing, networking, job search, career paths, and the tenure process. Junior economists who have completed their PhD in the past 6 years or graduate students who are on the job market are particularly encouraged to attend; and the event is open to both female and male economists. A light continental breakfast is provided.

Plans are in the works for the 2015 Mentoring Breakfasts to encourage more fluidity of discussion and to connect mentees with mentors in their geographic area as well as their economic field.

Information on event pre-registration will be published here and in the CSWEP News in Fall 2014.

CSWEP Annual Business Meeting
