We are excited to announce our plans for the Promoting Inclusion in Economic Research (PIER) 2020 conference! This conference will bring together undergraduate students at Williams College to share their research and engage in networking and mentoring activities.

This conference will be held at Williams College on Saturday, April 18, 2020.

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.

The call for papers will be released in early February with a submission deadline in early March; see Important Dates for more information on the timeline. We will welcome submissions of economic research abstracts from all undergraduates.

PIER is a new incarnation of the conference we ran in 2017, 2018, and 2019 (WiER - Women in Economic Research), and we are expanding the conference’s goal to one of promoting a diverse set of voices, across a broad range of dimensions, in the field of economics.
