Mentoring Organizations

The number of associations of women economists around the world is growing. All provide mentoring for economists, organize conference sessions, promote research on gender issues, and raise awareness of issues of particular concern to women in the economics profession. While these organizations may focus on women, there are many positive spillovers for men. Much of the information and advice freely disseminated by these organizations can be of value to all economists—especially to any junior economist— whether male or female, and whether minority or not.

What follows is almost certainly an incomplete list! Please help CSWEP expand this list so that we can learn from each other as well as promote networking. Send information on associations of women economists, including name and web site to: info@cswep.org.
