Diversity and Inclusion Statement
The challenges facing the economics profession are complex, and we do not kid ourselves to think that anything that we do over the coming months or even years will come close to fully confronting them. Nonetheless, it is time to start. And because words without actions are cheap and fundamentally unsatisfying, we lay out below what we see as some obvious areas for improvement, as well as concrete steps that we have already begun to take and others that we plan to take. Again, we view these as a start. Many of the ideas below are the result of thoughtful input from members of our community, and we welcome further input. We also hope and expect that you will hold us accountable for making progress on the items that we have identified.
