The hybrid Promoting Inclusion in Economic Research (PIER) 2023 conference hosted by Williams College will be on Saturday, April 29, 2023.  We will bring undergraduate students from a range of institutions together to share their research and engage in networking and mentoring activities.

The conference aims to promote economic research by and professional development of undergraduate students whose identities or life experiences are under-represented in the field of economics.

PIER is an incarnation of the conference we first ran in 2017 (WiER - Women in Economic Research). Starting in 2021 we expanded the conference’s goal to one of promoting a diverse set of voices, across a broad range of dimensions, in the field of economics.
