CSWEP Junior Mentoring Breakfasts

CSWEP is pleased this year to host two mentoring/networking breakfasts for junior economists at the AEA/ASSA Meetings from 8:00-10:00AM on Saturday, January 3, 2015 and Monday, January 5, 2015 in the Sheraton Boston, Fairfax A & B.

At these informal meet and greet events, senior economists (predominately senior women) will be on hand to provide mentoring and networking opportunities.  Junior economists are invited to drop in with questions on topics such as publishing, teaching, grant writing, networking, job search, career paths, and the tenure process.  For the 2015 breakfasts we will encourage rotation of mentees so that they may have the opportunity to connect with a greater number of mentors.  Junior economists who have completed their PhD in the past 6 years or graduate students who are on the job market are particularly encouraged to attend.  The event is open to both males and females. A light continental breakfast will be provided.

Space is limited and pre-registration is required.  To reserve your space, click here.

Registration will be confirmed by Monday, December 15, 2014.  You will be asked to provide your name, current institution and position title, research field interests, PhD year and institution, and your preference for the Saturday or Monday breakfast.  Questions?  Contact cswep@econ.duke.edu.


CSWEP Peer Mentoring Breakfast for Mid-Career Economists

In response to the interest expressed by many mid-career economists, CSWEP will host an inaugural peer mentoring breakfast for mid-career economists at the AEA/ASSA Meetings from 8:00-9:00AM and 9:00-10:00AM on Sunday, January 4, 2015, in the Sheraton Boston, Fairfax A & B. 

The event will provide a forum for female economists to explore the theme of Career Transitions for Mid-Career Women Economists and is open to both academic and non-academic economists.  Tenured academics at either associate or full rank and non-academics who are 10+ years post-PhD are particularly encouraged to attend.  The event is not open to graduate students or junior faculty, who will find CSWEP’s Mentoring Breakfast for Junior Economists on Saturday, January 3, or Monday, January 5, a better match.

Programming will last for one hour and will repeat, with the event offering both an 8:00- 9:00AM session and a 9:00-10:00AM session.  Both sessions will open with motivational remarks from Adriana Kugler, Vice-Provost for Faculty and Full Professor at the McCourt School of Public Policy, Georgetown University.

Participants will then join a themed table for discussion on career transition, with the table’s topical emphasis in mind.  Topics will include transitions from associate to full professor, from tenured professor into administration roles and back; between academic and non-academic institutions; and from (non-academic) economist into policy or other leadership. Participants will have the opportunity to visit two themed tables.  The session will close with one participant from each table sharing with the entire group the topmost piece of advice/priority articulated at their table.  As part of registration, participants will be asked to identify their top two topics. They will definitely be seated at one of them, and we will do our best to match them with both choices.  Participants will move to different tables and will not move as a group in order to enable participants to add to their networks.  A light continental breakfast will be provided.

Space is limited and pre-registration is required.  To reserve your space, click here.

Preference will be given to registrations received by Monday, December 1, 2014. You will be asked to provide your name, current institution and position title, research field interests, PhD year and institution, your table preferences and your preference for either the 8:00AM or 9:00AM session.  Registration and table assignments will be confirmed by Friday, December 19, 2014.  Participants will also be directed to online preparatory materials.
