Ad Hoc LGBTQ Economics Working Group

The mission of the LGBTQ Economics Working Group is to provide support for LGBTQ economists and economic research relevant to LGBTQ populations. The American Economic Association has supported the LGBTQ Economics Working Group since 2016 by hosting an annual meeting at the AEA/ASSA conference and by supporting the production of an LGBTQ Economics Newsletter.
