NABE Diversity & Inclusion Initiative

                                                             

The NABE Diversity & Inclusion Initiative and Committee were formed in May 2019, with the charges to:

1. Explore the current state of diversity and inclusion within NABE and member workplaces.

2. Suggest best practices to the NABE Board for NABE operations (conference planning, nominating committee, etc.).

3. Suggest tactics to the NABE Board for broadening and diversifying the business economist candidate pipeline.

4. Suggest tactics to the NABE Board to measure NABE’s progress going forward.


Accomplishments To Date:

- NABE Diversity Scholars Program:


Launched in June 2020, this five-year program expands on current NABE Foundation scholarship programs by providing scholarships for the Economic Measurement Seminar to minority economists/students who plan on going into a career in applied economics.
