WE_ARE & WinE join forces to organise a series of sessions for junior female economists
WE_ARE - Women in Economics: Advancing Research in Economics - is a CEPR seminar series where junior women present their work and get constructive feedback from their peers and from senior economists. The seminar series aims to bring together junior and senior women in economics and to contribute to building an active and cooperative CEPR women in economics community.
In its second year, WE_ARE join forces with WinE, the EEA Standing Committee on Women in Economics, whose objective is to support women in the economics profession by facilitating the formation of networks, by circulating information on, or relevant to, female economists, and by providing a forum for discussion of issues relevant to women in economics.
Together, WE_ARE and WinE are introducing a series of sessions offering useful advice and tools for junior women in the profession. The topics will include, but are not limited to, publishing, preparing for tenure, applying for grants and more.
The series was opened on Tuesday, 14 December 2021 with a presentation by Maria Guadalupe (INSEAD and CEPR) sharing her Reflections on pursuing a career in economics. In this session, Maria drew on her own research and that of others, her time spent in different committees/initiatives that aim to promote women in economics, as well as her personal experience to have an open discussion about building a career as a woman in economics.
2nd WE_ARE and WinE joint session, Tuesday, 7 June 2022 from 13:00 BST / 14:00 CEST.
Rachel Griffith (University of Manchester, Institute For Fiscal Studies and CEPR) will share her insights on the topic of Navigating the publication process.
In this session, Rachel will draw on her own experience of trying to publish her work, as well as her time spent as Editor of The Economic Journal, to give some reflections on how to navigate the process of trying to get your own work published and take the positives from what can sometimes feel like a brutal experience to help you move forward.

Debate - Los efectos de la Covid-19 desde una perspectiva de género / Debate - The effects of the Covid-19 from a gender perspective. The video is in Spanish only. There are no subtitles.
Three years ago, economics weekly ESB published a special issue about the strong underrepresentation of women in economics . A follow up event organised by the Royal Dutch Economic Association on 5 February, 2021, was devoted to the questions: What progress has been made since then? And what can we learn from experiences abroad? As part of the session, WinE member, Guido Friebel talked about the real-time online tool to monitor the representation of women in economics across Europe, which was developed with the support of WinE / EEA. The recording of the event can be viewed here.
