Economics is one of the most important fields in academia, government, and finance – yet it is also one of the least representative. Join a community of Black economists – emerging scholars and those more advanced in their careers – for a discussion on the Black experience in economics: entering and progressing within the discipline, the academy’s racial and cultural blind spots, and what the future brings for Black economists, both with respect to the profession and the ultimate goal of driving policy change and impact.

This virtual event, moderated by Damon Jones, Associate Professor, Harris Public Policy, will feature Lisa D. CookSandile Hlatshwayoand Trevon Logan.
