Launch of the EEA Minorities in Economics (MinE) Committee

Much more can be done to promote diversity, inclusion and equal opportunities in the economics profession. The new MinE committee hopes to take a first step forward. The representation of minorities is below population averages, there continue to be overt and covert cases of discrimination and prejudice, there are still too many barriers to access for people with disabilities, and there is limited recourse for being heard. With the launch we would like your input and collaboration to help us identify how to best address these issues. We will have a general discussion and break-out meetings on specific topics. People are invited from various ethnic backgrounds, LGBTQ+, people with disabilities and anyone else interested in related issues or who is concerned/curious. Please join us!

Panellists: Massimo Morelli (Bocconi University), Ghazala Azmat (Sciences Po), Vincent Sterk (UCL), Tim Lee (Queen Mary, University of London)

Moderator: Jan Eeckhout (UPF)

followed by 

Women in Economics (organised by the WinE Committee of EEA)

Panellists: Marianne Bertrand (Chicago), Ghazala Azmat (Sciences Po) and Camille Landais (London School of Economics)

Moderators: Tore Ellingson (Stockholm School of Economics) and Sigrid Suetens (Tilburg University)

Discussion points: There will be three short presentations plus discussion on these three topics, and then a general discussion at the end on what can/should be done:
- Understanding gender earnings gap
o Different educational choices and labor market choices
