Women in Economics Mentoring and Networking Retreat

Following on from the very successful WinE mentoring retreats held during EEA-ESEM in 2013 and 2014, EEA Mannheim 2015, and EEA-ESEM 2016, the WinE Committee is pleased to announce the fifth retreat will be held in connection with EEA-ESEM Lisbon 2017.

The Retreat will be once again open to early career female economists with positions (post-doctoral fellows, lecturers, researchers and assistant professors) at academic and research institutions and who obtained their PhDs in 2012-2017 (we will also consider applicants who expect to obtain their PhD at a later date but who have already secured a position for the next academic year at a different institution from their PhD granting one).

The attendees will participate in a series of innovative discussions organized as panels and as smaller groups run by senior mentors. The discussions will cover topics such as publishing, writing successful grant applications, networking and career planning, with attention paid to the unique challenges that women may face at different stages of their careers. A number of attendees will also take part in small group sessions, which will focus on participants’ research papers and provide an opportunity for detailed comment and feed-back from senior mentors in their field.

There will also be many opportunities for the attendees to socialise with each other and their mentors during this event.

There is an application process and you will be asked to submit an abstract of your paper.

Dates and Location
The retreat will begin at 2pm on Sunday August 20 in Lisbon and conclude at lunchtime on Monday August 21, just before the start of EEA-ESEM Lisbon 2017. All details will be given out on acceptance of application.

What's Included?
The Retreat is not subject to a registration fee. There will be presentations from top female economists during the afternoon of day 1, while day 2 will focus on smaller group sessions. There will be a networking reception on the evening of Sunday August 20.

If you are interested in participating, please complete the application form by Wednesday February 15, 2016. All successful applicants will be informed of participation by Tuesday April 18, 2015.
