We invite submissions for the 2nd Women in International Economics Conference, which will be held virtually on Zoom on September 23 and 24, 2021.
The workshop will include seven papers with discussants, and a keynote. We are delighted to announce that Caroline Freund, Dean of the School of Global Policy and Strategy at UC San Diego, has confirmed her participation as the keynote speaker. The workshop will also include a mentoring session between senior and junior women.
The goal of this conference is to enhance diversity within the field of international economics by providing junior women with a forum to present work and receive constructive feedback and mentorship. The presenting author of each paper must be a junior woman*** in the field of international economics. Submitted papers may be co- authored with anyone regardless of gender or seniority.
The submission deadline is August 13, 2021. Interested authors are invited to submit a paper at https://forms.gle/y5sBu7JScLvQmP8d7. Acceptances will be notified by 25 August 2021.

*** We adopt the same definition of the term junior woman as the Committee on the Status of Women in the Economics Profession (CSWEP) of the American Economic Association: "The term junior woman usually refers to anyone identifying as a woman or nonbinary who is untenured, or who has received a PhD less than seven years ago; but could also refer to a woman who has not yet presented papers widely."
