Committee on the Status of Women in the Economics Profession
CSWEP is a standing committee of the American Economic Association charged with serving professional women economists in academia, government agencies and elsewhere by promoting their careers and monitoring their progress. CSWEP activities endeavor to raise the awareness among men and women of the challenges that are unique to women鈥檚 careers and can be addressed with a wide variety of actions, from inclusive searches to formal and informal mentoring activities. CSWEP freely disseminates information on how the profession works as well as advice to junior economists. We intend this information to be of value to all economists, male or female, minority or not.

Bell Award Recipient
Janet M. Currie, the Henry Putnam Professor of Economics and Public Affairs, Chair of the Economics Department and Director of the Center for Health and Well-Being at Princeton University, is the recipient of the 2015 Carolyn Shaw Bell Award. Currie excels in her scholarship, in her teaching and advising, in mentoring, and in her service to the profession. She is an innovative and prolific scholar whose work spans labor, public and health economics. She has made fundamental contributions in many areas and is best known for her work on public policy issues affecting child health and wellbeing. Her work is notable for combining a focus on important, policy-relevant questions with unassailable objectivity and scrupulous attention to methodological detail. Currie rsquo;s concern for the development of the next generation of economists is expressed in her dedicated mentorship of colleagues and students, both male and female, who praise her sage, practical, no-nonsense advice and her creativity in devising solutions. She is known for her commitment to gender equity in economics and served as Co-PI on the initial NSF grant that funded the CeMENT Mentoring Workshops and led the research team that produced the only rigorous scientific evidence for the efficacy of a mentoring program. Currie will accept the award at the annual CSWEP business meeting held during the 2016 AEA/ASSA Meetings in San Francisco. Click here for the full announcement.
