WinE Retreat (Women in Economics Mentoring and Networking)

The WinE Committee is pleased to announce the fifth retreat will be held in connection with EEA-ESEM Lisbon 2017. The Retreat is 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 (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, will also be considered).

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 socialize with each other and their mentors during this event. Please visit the congress website at http://www.eea-esem-congresses.org/ for application information, dates and further details.
