Women in Economics: Making Connections and Forging Ahead
Neymotin, Florence
NASPA Journal About Women in Higher Education, v4 n2 p242-243 Sep 2011
In 2009, the economics department at Kansas State University began one of the first department-level Women in Economics groups for female graduate students in the United States. This is particularly important because of the general under-representation of women in the economics profession and especially in the academy. The main goals of this group are: (1) Mentorship and Role Models; (2) Network Building; and (3) Forum for Discussion and Mutual Support. Mentorship has largely consisted of bringing female professors and researchers in the economics profession in to share their trials, successes, and advice. Network building has consisted of meetings and social gatherings where women have the opportunity to discuss possible collaborations among themselves and with mentors.
