Women in Economics Mentoring Workshop

The aim of the event is to provide an opportunity for female economists at different stage of their career to expand their research networks and collaborations, discuss issues in an informal and friendly setting, and participate in small group mentoring sessions.

Date: Friday 19 June, 6.15-7.30pm
Location:Radcliffe House, University of Warwick

Participants will take part in a series of discussions lead by our mentors and organised around topics such as publishing, writing successful grant applications, networking, career planning; the focus will be on the challenges that women may face especially at the early stage of the career

Attendees will also take part in the small group sessions, based on common research interests, there will be the chance for PhD students and junior research to receive comments and feedback on their work from the external mentors and more senior female economists working in the same field. There will also be many opportunities for the attendees to socialise with each other during this event.

The event is inspired by the Royal Economic Society Women Mentoring retreat, which was organised by the RES women committee at Warwick in April 2019.
