Federal Reserve Board of Governors


The National Summit on Diversity in the Economics Profession, hosted by the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System in partnership with the American Economic Association, will be held at the Federal Reserve Board on October 30, 2014 in Washington, D.C. This conference brings together presidents and research directors of the Federal Reserve Banks and chairs of economics departments from around the country to open a profession-wide dialogue about diversity. Speakers and panelists will discuss the state of diversity in the economics profession and examples of successful diversity initiatives in academia. A hallmark of the conference will be the opportunity for collegial learning, discussion, and sharing among faculty peers to develop practical ideas about what can be accomplished in our profession.

Please note that attendance at the conference is by invitation only. Conference attendees and media representatives must register in advance.
