AAAE Virtual Event: Diversity, Equity and Inclusion in the Field of Economics -Evidence from Atlantic Canada with Comparisons to the Country as a Whole
The presenters will share results from a survey conducted in Atlantic Canada during the fall of 2022.
The survey goals were to: (1) examine the representation of economists by dimension of diversity; (2) assess workplace climate, including discrimination and harassment; and (3) solicit input about what individuals, employers and/or professional associations could do to improve diversity, equity and inclusion in the field of economics.
This study is intended to complement the national workplace survey that was conducted in the fall of 2019. The presenters will make comparisons, where possible, between the economics profession in Atlantic Canada and Canada as a whole.
