The American Economic Association's Committee on the Status of Women in the Economics Profession (CSWEP) is pleased to announce the 5 Annual Mentoring Breakfasts for Junior Faculty to be held at the 2017 AEA/ASSA Meetings in Chicago. At these informal meet and greet events, senior economists (predominately senior women) will be on hand to provide mentoring and networking opportunities. Junior economists are invited to drop in with questions on topics such as publishing, research, teaching, grant writing, networking, job search, career paths, work-life balance and the tenure process. Rotation of mentees throughout the event is encouraged so that they may have the opportunity to connect with the greatest number of mentors. This mentoring experience is intended for junior economists who have completed their PhD in the past 6 years or graduate students who are on the job market. The event is open to both males and females. A light continental breakfast will be provided.
