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 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 2014-2019 (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 2:30 pm on Sunday, August 25 in Manchester and conclude at lunchtime on Monday August, 26, just before the start of EEA-ESEM Manchester 2019. 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 25.

Please note that if you are accepted but cancel your attendance at a late notice, you will be subject to a cancellation fee.

If you are interested in participating, please complete the application form by Friday, February 15, 2019. All successful applicants will be informed of participation by Thursday, April 18, 2019.
