Women In Economics (WinE) Mentoring Retreat: Following on from the very successful WinE mentoring retreats held annually from 2013 to 2018, the WinE Committee is pleased to announce the seventh retreat will be held in connection with EEA-ESEM Manchester 2019. The Econometric Society will once again be joining forces with the WinE Committee of the European Economic Association in the organization of this mentoring retreat.

The Retreat is open to early career female economists with positions (post-doctoral fellows, lecturers, researchers) at academic and research institutions and who obtained their PhDs between 2014-2019. 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 the 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.

Full information on the event and on how to apply for it is available on the EEA-ESEM Congress website.

We look forward to meeting you all in Manchester!
