CSWEP: Opportunities to Become a Mentor
As success breeds success, the effective mentoring of women economists has become ever more central to CSWEP’s mission. The CSWEP Board extends its gratitude to the mentors who over the years have given of their time and expertise in a variety of CSWEP mentoring capacities – thank you for your wisdom, your sage insights and your caretaking of professional legacy.
Become a CSWEP Mentor
We encourage senior economists both inside and outside of academia to participate as mentors in our many mentoring programs. Invest as little as one hour at our mentoring breakfasts at the annual ASSA meeting or forge a deeper bond as a CeMENT workshop mentor for faculty in both doctoral and non-doctoral programs (female mentors only). Find additional mentoring opportunities at the virtual graduate student mentoring workshop held in September 2023 or the in-person graduate student mentoring workshop held the day before the Southern Economics Association conference in November 2023.
Fill out this Google form to send your information to the CSWEP organizers of mentoring events. We will be in touch with event information and logistics as our needs unfold. If you have any questions, please reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Apply for Mentoring Funding
Want to mentor outside of CSWEP? Extend your campus or professional visit to include mentoring of professional junior economists, graduate students and/or undergraduates, add a day of mentoring to a professional conference or put on a speed mentoring event for professional economists in your town. The Haworth Committee administers co-sponsorship of mentoring events and experiences through the Joan Haworth Mentoring Fund and CSWEP experimental funding. Funding requests must be consistent with the mission of CSWEP and may be submitted by the senior mentor or the co-sponsoring individual, department or agency. Most proposals are funded for $1K or less. Successful applicants will be asked to write a brief summary of the event. Visit the Haworth Funding page for more details and a link to the application.
