CSWEP-East


CSWEP sponsored 7 paper sessions and a networking breakfast at the 2014 Eastern Economic Association Meetings in Boston. The sessions included papers and prepared discussions by female Ph.D. students and junior faculty as well senior faculty. They covered a range of topics in the area of applied microeconomics, related to health, career-family conflict, and public policy issues in the US and developing countries. The networking breakfast also drew a diverse group of economists, ranging from a couple of female undergraduate economics majors (who presented papers in non-CSWEP sessions, with their male faculty mentor) to senior female faculty members and leaders in the Eastern Economic Association and in the profession.  Click here for a session summary including session topics, chairs, authors, paper titles and discussants.

CSWEP-Midwest


CSWEP sponsored two career development panels and a networking lunch at the 2014 Midwestern Economics Association Meeting in Evanston.  The morning panel, Advice for Job Seekers, was pitched toward junior economists, and offered perspectives from a diversity of job environments, including the Fed, policy institutes, Liberal Arts institutions and teaching and research at a public University.  The afternoon panel, A Discussion on Academic Careers, was geared toward economists at mid-career and covered topics such as children and the tenure clock, being career pro-active, handling administrative overload and moving up the academic ladder. The panel discussions and lunch were well attended and received by both male and female economists.  Click here for a session summary, including panelists.
