27th Annual Meeting of the Midwest Econometrics Group

October 20-21, 2017, Texas A&M University

The Third MEG Mentoring Workshop for Junior Female Economists

The local organizers of this year’s MEG meeting are hosting the third mentoring workshop for junior female economists as a conference event, following the first MEG mentoring workshop held at the Indiana University in 2013 and the second MEG mentoring workshop held at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in 2016. The mentoring workshop is for junior female economists, including female junior scholars doing applied, empirical or theoretical econometrics research in all fields of economics. In the MEG mentoring workshop, we intend to explore, through various forms of mentor-mentee pair presentations, novel and creative ways of mentoring juniors. Our goal is to provide an opportunity for juniors to work closely with established senior mentors, which can help them start building a substantive and long-lasting intellectual relationship. It will also naturally open up possibilities for collaboration and a joint research.

The mentoring workshop will start with a networking dinner in the evening of October 19th. Mentoring sessions are scheduled for the morning of October 20th.

The tentative list of participating mentors is below:

Junior participants of the conference are encouraged to apply by sending an email expressing interest to Yoosoon Chang or Tatevik Sekhposyan.
