Sessions will focus primarily on issues encountered by underrepresented groups in economics, finance, and central banks.2
We invite papers drawn from a variety of methods, perspectives, and disciplines and especially encourage submissions from groups traditionally less represented in economics and finance. We expect that most papers will be academic-style research. We are also open to studies from practitioners or involving other professions that draw on or shed light on the experience in the economics, finance, and central banking professions, or that highlight the effects of practical steps to increase diversity and inclusion.
Areas of particular interest include, but are not limited to:
• How can the fields of economics, finance, and central banking better attract and retain members of underrepresented groups?
• What are the obstacles to greater diversity and inclusion in these fields? What steps can be taken to overcome them, including in light of the challenges and opportunities that have arisen during the pandemic?
• What role does diversity and inclusion play in policymaking at central banks?
