Conference on Race and Economics


Special Event

United States

The Penn Wharton Conference on Race and Economics will be hosted virtually on October 16, 2020, in honor of the upcoming 100th anniversary of Sadie Tanner Mossell Alexander’s receipt of her PhD in economics from the Penn Economics Department. 

The goal of the conference is two-fold: to promote current academic research by Black economists with an emphasis on topics of race in the United States, and to host panel discussions on racial inclusion in the profession and questions about how economics studies issues of race as a discipline.
