Event description
The RES is launching a three-year campaign to attract and change perceptions of economics among students from under-represented groups.

About this Event

There is increasing awareness of the lack of diversity in economics and the need to do more to attract women, minority students and students from state schools and colleges. The RES is therefore launching a three-year campaign aimed at changing perceptions of economics among young people and attracting students from under-represented groups.

The campaign is a partnership between the RES and leading economic organisations. The launch event will set out the details of the campaign – and how organisations can become involved. It will feature a panel discussion with Rachel Griffith (President, Royal Economic Society), Catherine Connolly (Society of Professional Economists), Ratidzo Starkey (Head of Outreach and Education, Bank of England), Osama Rahman (the Department for Education’s Director of Analysis and Chief Scientific Adviser) and Ali Norrish (Head of Research and Schools, Economy).

Please note a light lunch will be provided towards the end of the event.

If you are unable to attend the launch event but would like to stay in touch, please email campaigns@res.org.uk
