Williams College will be hosting the virtual Promoting Inclusion in Economic Research (PIER) conference on Saturday, April 30, 2022. The conference is targeted towards current undergraduates whose identities or life experiences are under-represented in the field of economics. Participants will share their own economic research and network with peers and mentors.
Individuals interested in presenting should submit a 500-word abstract that describes the paper’s research question and contribution, the research design, and the theoretical framework or data used (as appropriate), as well as a 150-word description of how the applicant’s participation furthers the goal of promoting an inclusive environment within economics. In addition, submitters may optionally upload a longer document consisting of an extended abstract or a paper draft. See the conference website for more details and the submission portal. Submissions are due March 25, 2022.
