Following on from the very successful WinE mentoring retreats held annually from 2013 to 2019, the WinE Committee is pleased to announce the eighth retreat will be held in connection with EEA Virtual 2020. The Econometric Society will once again be joining forces with the WinE Committee of the European Economic Association in the organisation 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 2015-2020. 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 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 around 2pm on Sunday, August 23, and conclude at lunchtime on Monday, August 24, just before the start of EEA Virtual 2020. All details will be given out on acceptance of application.

What's Included?
The Retreat is subject to a registration fee of €100. Mentees who attend the Retreat will be able to apply for a travel grant of €100. 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 26.
