The National Tax Association is pleased to announce two new initiatives for the 2021 Annual Conference on Taxation in Detroit, Michigan:
2021 NTA Equity and Inclusion Fellowship
The NTA Equity & Inclusion Fellowship provides conference travel funding with the goal of increasing participation in and creating long-lasting relationships with the National Tax Association and its activities among underrepresented minority (URM) graduate students and early career PhDs/JDs engaged in the theory and practice of public finance and taxation.
The fellowship provides an NTA membership and supports the travel and participation of up to 5 students or early career professionals from traditionally underrepresented backgrounds at the NTA Annual Conference in Detroit, November 18-20, 2021. Deadline to submit is August 31, 2021.
2021 NTA/CSWEP Mentoring Dinner
The National Tax Association (NTA) and Committee on the Status of Women in the Economics Profession (CSWEP) Mentoring Dinner provides an opportunity for women and non-binary persons engaged in the theory and practice of public finance and taxation to interact and create professional relationships with each other and the NTA.
The dinner will be held Wednesday, November 17th, the night before the NTA meeting at a Detroit area restaurant. Participants will be organized into small groups based on common interests and each group will be matched with two mentors. Participants are encouraged to engage in conversations on a variety of issues, including generating research ideas, collaboration and co-authorship, publishing, promotion processes, networking, and work-life balance. Mentors and mentees are also encouraged to connect before, throughout, and after the conference, including the opportunity to have a practice job market interview conducted by a senior mentor. Deadline to submit is August 31, 2021.
