The Federal Reserve Bank of Richmond, the Robins School of Business at the University of Richmond, and the Undergraduate Women in Economics are once again organizing the Diverse Economics Conference.
Join us for the third annual “Diverse Economics: People, Perspectives, Careers” (DivEc) Conference. This virtual event is aimed at undergraduate students majoring in Economics (or related fields), with the goal of providing students with information about some of the many diverse career options available. This year, the conference will take place over three days:
- Tuesday, November 16, 5:00-7:30 PM ET
- Wednesday, November 17, 5:00-7:30 PM ET
- Thursday, November 18, 10:00-11:00 AM ET
The first day will feature a keynote address from Dr. Peter Q. Blair (Harvard Graduate School of Education). You will also hear from seasoned professionals who will share their career journeys and talk about how economics can be used to answer complex questions and tackle important problems. On the second day, early-career economists will discuss how they use economics in their day-to-day work and share advice on how current students can pursue similar careers. You will also hear from research economists and Research Associates at the Federal Reserve Bank of Richmond and learn about careers at the Fed. On the third day, students may be able to interview for positions at the Fed.
