We match women PhD students from the Graduate Institute, the University of Geneva, the University of Lausanne and EPFL with women professors from the area based on research interest. 

The idea is for students to feel free to ask for guidance and advice distinct from the type of advice a supervisor would give. In particular, we wish to create a setup where students are at ease to ask questions and/or admit failures they might otherwise fear would negatively impact their future careers. In doing so, we would like to improve the (too often dismal) experience of women PhD students in economics in our local network and support them in mastering this crucial part of their career - both professionally and mentally. 

We are grateful for the generous support of our mentors:
