CSWEP Midwest

84th Annual Conference

March 27-29, 2020, Hilton Orrington - Evanston in Evanston, Illinois
St. Louis, Missouri
Organizer: Shahina Amin, University of Northern Iowa


Call for Participants and Topic Ideas

Panels on Career Development

CSWEP (Committee on the Status of Women in the Economics Profession) is organizing two panels on topics related to career development at the Midwest Economics Association Meetings to be held March 27-29, 2020, at the Hilton Orrington – Evanston in Evanston, Illinois. There is a CSWEP networking lunch that you are welcome to attend. There will also be a CSWEP Mentoring Breakfast for Junior Faculty in Non-Doctoral Programs that you can register for before the conference.

The panels and lunch will be held on the Friday 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. The Mentoring Breakfast for Junior Faculty in Non-Doctoral Program will be on Saturday. 

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 5, 2019) 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, networking lunch, and mentoring breakfast 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/.
