AbstractRecently 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.
MethodsResponse Rates: for the survey unknown as we asked recipients of our survey invitation to send the invitation on.
for the long form interviews, we tried to interview 55 people. We succeeded in interviewing 42.
