CSWEP: Calls and Announcements

CSWEP at Midwest Economic Association - Call for Papers

March 22 - 28, 2021 
Virtual CSWEP Panels on Career Development on Friday, March 26, 2021

CSWEP (Committee on the Status of Women in the Economics Profession) is organizing two panels on topics related to career development at the Virtual Midwest Economics Association Meetings to be held from March 22-28, 2021.

The panels will be held on the Friday (March 26) of the conference. One panel will be geared to those looking for jobs (academic and nonacademic) and another panel will focus on mid-career issues.  Each panel will have four participants who will each speak for about 10 minutes.  The sessions are organized to allow for plenty of time for an active exchange of ideas and advice among the panelists and session attendees. 

If you have specific suggestions regarding the topics to be covered or ideas for potential panelists (you can also suggest yourself), please submit your topics and ideas as soon as possible (no later than October 12, 2020) to Shahina Amin, CSWEP Midwest Rep, shahina.amin@uni.edu. To foster the exchange of new ideas, we especially seek individuals who have not previously served as panelists. 

In addition to the CSWEP panels the MEA meetings provide a great opportunity to present your own research.  For those interested in presenting a paper, you can find paper submission information on the MEA website, http://mea.grinnell.edu/.
