RES Mentoring Programme: Call for Mentees
If you are an early career female researcher in economics and would like to be mentored by a senior female economist, you might be interested in participating in the Royal Economic Society’s Mentoring Programme. To apply please fill in the Google Form by Monday 8 November 2021, 23:59 (GMT).

If selected, you will be asked to submit your CV and one of your papers (preferably solo-authored and not close to publication) to your assigned mentor by the end of December 2021. Mentees and mentors will be matched based on the mutual research interests wherever possible. However, please consider that the mentoring will consist of general feedback on a research paper and career advice and therefore, a perfect match with respect to research interests is not necessary. 

Should you have any questions, please feel free to contact the women's committee at wcommittee@res.org.uk. Please visit the RES website for more information on the mentoring programme.
