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, 2017. All successful applicants will be informed of participation by Tuesday April 18, 2017.

Organisers and Sponsors
The WinE Retreat is supported by funding from EEA and ES and an annual donation received by The Review of Economic Studies. The Retreat is organized by the EEA central office in collaboration with the WinE Committee, chaired by Emmanuelle Auriol, and a scientific co-chair nominated by the Econometric Society. The EEA central office relies on the help of local organizers and this year it thanks Alexandra Ferreira Lopes, Assistant Professor of the Economics Department of the ISCTE Business School of ISCTE - IUL. 

The co-chairs of this year's Retreat are Emmanuelle Auriol and Paola Manzini.

In 2017, the WinE Retreat benefits from a kind donation from the European Central Bank (ECB). The ECB is committed to enhance gender diversity in the economics profession. It is also currently engaged in increasing the share of women in its own leadership ranks. Having achieved a share of 27% of women in management-level positions and 18% of women in senior management-level positions in 2016, the ECB is now striving to achieve additional targets for Principal Expert and Senior/Expert positions of 42% and 50% in order to increase the internal pipeline of talented female candidates for managerial positions. The topic of gender diversity has been high on the ECB’s agenda as the organisation aims to identify, attract and develop female talent. The ECB has recently implemented several diversity measures, including an open day for female talent.
