In response to a demand from EAERE members to initiate a pathway leading to a common understanding on how to make progress in diversity, equity and inclusion issues, and support initiatives aiming to eliminate impediments to create an inclusive environment in the economic profession, EAERE promotes an initiative on Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) within the Association. This initiative will promote fora for discussions, informing and involving people, showcase data, mapping the main problems and identify goals with the final ambition of possibly proposing solutions.

An Executive Committee of the Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Initiative (DEI) is currently being formed. Members of the Executive Committee will contribute to the definition of the Association’s strategy to secure progress in these topics, to build the Committee’s activity plan and explore fund-raising options. Members’ mandate will last from the date of their nomination until December 31st, 2023, and may be renewed.
