WAIB Meeting


Saturday, November 17, from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m.

Many national and international organizations have women's networks or caucuses as part of their annual convention meetings. Some women's groups meet primarily for networking (e.g., the Canadian Women Economists Network ). Others focus on gender issues in their respective professions (e.g., the Women's Caucus for International Studies and Gender Issues in Accounting ). Still others focus on gender-related research (e.g., Gender and Diversity in Organizations. Perhaps the longest running, best-financed group is the Committee on the Status of Women in the Economics Profession, which does all three.

The Academy of International Business does not have a women's networking group; although, at the AIB 2000 Phoenix meetings, 19 percent of the registered participants were women. The AIB Executive has therefore decided to hold a wine & cheese reception for women faculty and graduate students attending the AIB 2001 Sydney meetings.

This reception will be sponsored by the Department of Management at Texas A&M University on Saturday, November 17, from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m., location TBA. Perhaps out of this initial reception may emerge a women's networking group that meets yearly at the AIB meetings? We'll see. Please block out the date and time on your calendar and plan to attend the first WAIB reception! For more information, please contact Lorraine Eden at
