CSMGEP: Committee on the Status of Minority Groups in the Economics Profession
About the Committee
CSMGEP was established by the American Economic Association (AEA) in 1968 to increase the representation of minorities in the economics profession, primarily by broadening opportunities for the training of underrepresented minorities. CSMGEP, which is comprised of economists from all areas of the profession, also works to ensure that issues related to the representation of minorities are considered in the work of the AEA, and engages in other efforts to promote the advancement of minorities in the economics profession.

Diversifying Economic Quality: A Wiki for Instructors and Departments
As part of the American Economic Association's commitment to advancing diversity in the profession, CSMGEP now hosts a new online resource for economics faculty. Diversifying Economic Quality: A Wiki for Instructors and Departments (Div.E.Q.) promotes best teaching practices in economics, particularly practices that encourage members of underrepresented groups to continue their study of economics. Created by Amanda Bayer of Swarthmore College, Div.E.Q. presents useful information in an efficient manner, digesting the relevant research and identifying recommendations with empirical support, and offers a place where economists can share their research and learn from the collected wisdom of others.
