Committee on the Status of LGBTQ+ Individuals in the Economics Profession
The mission of the Committee on the Status of LGBTQ+ Individuals in the Economics Profession 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. The Ad Hoc Committee was made a full committee in June 2019.
The Committee maintains a Google Group with announcements about events and research relevant to LGBTQ+ economists and allies and those who study LGTBQ+ peoples; interested individuals can request to join at https://groups.google.com/forum/#!forum/lgbtqeconnewsletter or email firstname.lastname@example.org with a request to join.
