CSWEP Registration for Mentoring Breakfasts

Each year, CSWEP hosts mentoring breakfasts at the ASSA meetings.  Because the meetings will be virtual again this year, we are eager to continue these popular events in a virtual format—though they will be held outside of traditional breakfast hours to accommodate participants in more time zones. We will host separate events for junior economists and for mid-career economists.

The Mentoring “Breakfast” for Junior Economists is for untenured assistant professors or equivalent (approximately 7 years or fewer since Ph.D.), and graduate students on the job market.   We welcome mentees of all genders. At these informal meet-and greet-events, senior economists will be on hand to provide mentoring and networking opportunities.  Topics covered will include research and publishing, teaching, grant-writing, job search, work-life balance and the tenure process. Mentees will rotate throughout the event so that they may have the opportunity to connect with multiple mentors.  

The Peer Mentoring "Breakfast" for Mid-career Economists creates an opportunity for exchange and peer mentoring for mid-career economists.  This event is intended for women and nonbinary economists who have obtained a first promotion. For academic economists, the intended mentee is typically a tenured associate professor. Nonacademic economists in a similar career stage are welcome to attend.   Mentoring sessions will be facilitated by senior mentors and will center on strategies for maintaining research activity at this stage, managing service demands, growing one’s professional reputation, and other challenges of midcareer.

The Mentoring "Breakfast" for Junior Economists will be held virtually on Zoom on Saturday, January 8, 2022 – 2:30PM – 3:30PM ET

The Peer Mentoring "Breakfast" for Mid-Career Economists will be held virtually on Zoom on Sunday, January 9, 2022 – 2:30PM – 3:30PM ET

To register, click the links above and follow the Eventbrite.com registration prompts. Both events have a capacity limit and participants will be selected on a first-come, first-serve basis if there is excess demand.

If you are a senior economist who is interested in serving as a mentor for either event, we’d love to have you join us!  To volunteer as a mentor, send an email to info@cswep.org indicating the date(s) you are able to attend.
