Summer 2021 intern Maya Love shares her experiences with the Sadie Collective: “I got involved in the Sadie Collective as an undergrad. I was looking for a network to help connect me with other Black women interested in economics/data science and becoming a member of Sadie Collective exposed me to an entire network dedicated to advancing Black women in the field. I appreciate seeing a conference dedicated to informing Black undergrads about the opportunities and networks available to them. I believe in order to apply innovative solutions to today’s toughest economic issues it is imperative to have more diverse perspectives and connections to different communities in the field.” The Exploring Career Pathways in Economics event starts Thursday so register today: https://bit.ly/3s3Hcmd #CareersinEcon

Project Hometown Learning Loss

“Students were making learning gains this last year, however they are not as steep as typical years…we saw bigger relative declines for Latinx, Black, and Native American students…as well as for students in high poverty schools,” shared Megan Kuhfeld (NWEA) during our #ProjectHometown event on learning loss.

Hear from Malcolm Thomas, research assistant, on why the Exploring Career Pathways in Economics program is important: “When I hosted the Research Assistant Panel last year, my goal was to affirm Black students in knowing that their perspectives are essential to effectively designing and conducting economic research. Diverse perspectives enhance our ability to properly speak to complex social issues with our research, as demonstrated by the Black economists currently in the field who have made great contributions to the discipline—like the namesake of the Sadie Collective, Dr. Sadie T.M. Alexander. There should be more representation and inclusion of diverse voices in monetary policy, so conferences like this are important to help empower Black students to share their gifts in this field and excel.”

Alejandro Justiniano's “insatiable desire to learn and his ability to put others at ease made him an influential teacher and a role model among young scholars,” reflect colleagues in a special issue of the Review of Economic Dynamics honoring his life and work. https://bit.ly/3AwsYxh

Dedicated to the memory of Alejandro's scholarship and humanity, the issue includes 10 papers presented at the Alejandro Justiniano Memorial Conference hosted by the Chicago Fed in 2019. Alejandro was a much-admired economist and friend. He is dearly missed.

“I signed up for Exploring Career Pathways last year mainly to network at the career fair, but the conference was really helpful. There was a session with Chicago Fed research assistants, and it was cool just to get an idea of what an economist actually does in the real world. They talked to us about their own career paths and what affected their decisions to pursue or not pursue a PhD. And at the career fair, I ended up talking to a recruiter from the Chicago Fed which is how I heard about the summer internship program I’m part of this year. It’s tough to really connect with people remotely, but I met a lot of great people last year,” shares Chicago Fed intern Ryan Perry.
