CSWEP: Senior Mentoring Opportunities

Senior Mentoring Opportunities

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 Senior Mentor

We encourage senior economists both inside and outside of academia to participate as mentors in our many mentoring programs. Invest as little as an hour at one of the Mentoring Breakfasts at the AEA (male and female mentors welcome) or forge a deeper bond by mentoring in the CeMENT Workshops (female mentors only). 

To get involved, send an email expressing your willingness to serve to Lauren Lewis, CSWEP Admin, info@cswep.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.
