Activities of the Canadian Women Economists Network (CWEN)

The Canadian Women Economists Network was very active at the June, 1998 meetings of the Canadian Economics Association, organizing three sessions (Modelling Household Behaviour: Cohabitation, Marriage and Divorce; Household Behaviour in Developing Economies; Testing Models of Household Behaviour) and hosting a luncheon. All three sessions were excellent in terms of interesting papers, useful and constructive discussants' comments, and knowledgeable participation on the part of the audience. Many thanks to all involved for making the sessions such a success.

At the luncheon, we held our annual business meeting, elected the new executive and discussed priorities for next year. The new executive for 1998/99 consists of:

President Roberta Robb (Brock)
Vice-President: Joann Kingston-Riechers (McMaster)
Past-President: Shelley Phipps (Dalhousie)
Secretary/Treasurer Linda Welling (Univ. of Victoria)
IAFFE Link: Frances Woolley (Carleton)
SSHF Link: Vicky Barham (Ottawa)
Member-at-Large Lori Curtis (Dalhousie)
Diane Dupont (Brock)
Christina Echevarria (Saskatchewan)
Newsletter/Web Page: Brenda Spotton (York)

The Priorities for next year include:

  • Organizing an informal meeting for women economists at the Canadian Economics Employment Exchange in Early December. At this meeting, senior faculty women will e available to answer questions and provide advice to graduate students and/or junior faculty who are looking for employment. More detailed information on this event will be available on the CWEN Web Page (http://www.yorku.ca/research/cwen) closer to the date.
  • Developing the criteria for at least one, and possibly two CWEN prizes to be awarded annually at the CEA meetings.
  • Giving the CWEN luncheon a higher profile by inviting a prominent speaker to give an address on her/his area of interest or some topic pertaining to gender issues.
  • Organizing one or two sessions for the annual conference of the International Association of Feminist Economics (IAFFE) to be held at Carleton University in the summer of 1999 (dates to be announced later).
  • Undertaking a systematic membership drive. The purpose of CWEN is to allow women and interested male economists to discuss issues of common interest, particularly (but not exclusively) in the area of gender issues. It is also designed to serve as a notice board for job postings and calls for papers, and as a facilitating organization to help younger women successfully integrate into the profession. Membership is open to women, men and institutions in academia, business, or government. Membership rates for 1998/99 are : Regular Memberships - $20; Students - $10; Institutions - $25. If you have not renewed your membership for 1998/99, or wish to join as a new member, please contact Linda Welling, Department of Economics, University of Victoria, P.O. Box 1700, Victoria, B.C. V8W 2Y2; email: welling@uvvm.uvic.ca

Information on CWEN activities can be obtained from our Web Page or by sending a message to the CWEN list: cwen@unixg.ubc.ca. To subscribe to the SWEN list, send a message to majordomo@unixg.ubc.ca with no subject, and in the text put the one-line message:

(Be careful not to append a signature). If you have any questions/problems, contact Angela Redish at anji@econ.ubc.ca.

We are now working on organizing sessions for the CEA meetings in Toronto for 1999. Any ideas or suggestions for sessions are most welcome and should be forwarded to Roberta Robb (rrobb@spartan.ac.brocku.ca). Updates on our activities will be provided throughout the year.
