Inclusivity in the economics profession

In their recent overview of the diversity problem in economics, Amanda Bayer and Cecilia Rouse write that

The economics profession includes disproportionately few women and members of historically underrepresented racial and ethnic minority groups, relative both to the overall population and to other academic disciplines. […] This underrepresentation within the field of economics is present at the undergraduate level, continues into the ranks of the academy, and is barely improving over time. It likely hampers the discipline, constraining the range of issues addressed and limiting our collective ability to understand familiar issues from new and innovative perspectives.

We have to do better. The resources below lay out the sobering facts and offer actionable suggestions for how economists, individually and collectively, can make our profession more diverse, more inclusive, and more hospitable for all of us.
