Description
  • Abstract

    Recently in economics there has been discussion of how to increase diversity in the profession and how to improve the work life of diverse peoples. We conducted surveys and interviews with Black, Latinx and Native American people, groups long underrepresented in the economics profession. Participants, at various stages along the economics career trajectory or on the trajectory no longer, used their lived experience to reflect on what helps and hurts underrepresented minorities in economics. We heard a few consistent themes, bias, hostile climate, and the lack of information and good mentoring among them. Respondents’ insights and experience point toward action steps that you can take today to increase the presence and improve the work life of unrepresented minorities in the economics profession.

Sampling
We sent out our call for survey invitations through list serves and social media of The Committee on the Status of Minority Groups in the Economics Profession, the American Society of Hispanic Economists and the National Economic Association. Of course, these interest groups reach graduate students and practicing economists. Because we also wanted to reach those who at one time had an interest in economics but decided against it, we also targeted by e-mail former AEA Summer program attendants and program applicants who did not attend.  (These groups were targeted for a survey designed to measure the impact of the AEA Summer Program (Becker et. al 2016))
