FIRN Women 2022 Program
FIRN Women have a full schedule of activities for 2022. Most of the FIRN Women events this year will take place at 1pm on the third Friday of each month via a hybrid delivery mode, with some exceptions. Each event will take place physically at the hosting location with participants being able to zoom in from their own computer or from a self-organized regional hub. With regional hubs, participants can meet in-person and join the meeting together with other academics from the same region. This hybrid mode aims to achieve a good balance between in-person networking and accessibility given participants’ diverse geographic location in the current uncertain environment. Being an event host or a regional hub host requires access to a room with tech facility that is designed for video conferencing.

FIRN will be offering four office-hour sessions with successful senior academic women leaders in finance.
- Life after tenure: increased service load / possible editorial service / more freedom.
Friday March 25, 9:30-10:30am AEDT . With Laura Field (University of Delaware)
- Juggling multiple projects at multiple stages.
Wednesday March 30, 9:30-10:30am AEDT. With Diane Del Guercio (University of Oregon)
- Covid / isolation: I haven’t gotten to know my new colleagues because everybody is working from home.
Friday April 1, 4-5pm AEDT. With Elena Asparouhova (University of Utah)
- Research: how to get feedback, when to submit.
Friday October 7th, 9:00-10:00am AEDT. With Mara Faccio (University of Purdue)
Each session will be a one-hour group session. In order to facilitate the conversation, we will invite up to 8 people as active participants. The active participants will be given priority in asking questions and engaging with the woman leader with their camera on. All other female FIRN members are very welcome to join the session and observe with their cameras off. We will leave 10 minutes at the end for open questions.
