History of the 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.
