Join Dr. Thomas Knight for a discussion on resources and pedagogical practices for building a more inclusive classroom to inspire students to see themselves in an economics profession.

Dr. Thomas Knight, University of Florida

Institutions today are making a commitment to DE&I to promote and support the success of underrepresented students. The field of Economics is one of the least diverse disciplines among college and universities, including a woeful underrepresentation of women and minorities. In this session, we will discuss resources and pedagogical practices for building a more inclusive classroom to inspire students to see themselves in an economics profession. We will showcase current economics research by women and underrepresented minorities, touch on climate change, wage inequality, prenatal substance abuse, and more.
