The Royal Economic Society is in a position of responsibility to facilitate and promote the change required for the discipline to become more diverse and inclusive. The Society can reach a large number of economists through its activities and has the power to influence academic and professional economists.
The Society’s strategy for 2019-2023 identified Improving Diversity as a strategic priority. Our Diversity Hub brings together this work and work supported by the Society to improve diversity in the discipline.
As part of the Diversity & Inclusion Programme, the Royal Economic Society is offering a “Consciously Inclusive Mentoring” short programme and we are inviting all volunteer mentors from the Women Mentoring Programme to engage. We hope to roll this programme out later in the year, following this initial pilot.
The code will apply to RES members and all those engaging in our events and activities.
