Demystifying a Career Path in Economics and Advancing Diversity

The Federal Reserve Bank of New York would like to invite college students and professors nationwide to attend our webinar: "Demystifying a Career Path in Economics and Advancing Diversity, Spring 2021" to be held on Wednesday, March 31, 3:00 pm - 4:30 p.m.

The webinar will provide information about careers in economics and aims to further awareness of the opportunities in the field among a broader talent pool. New York Fed economists and research analysts (RAs) will discuss the path to become an economist, why they chose careers in economics, their experience in the field, and the importance of expanding diversity in the profession.

Economists and RAs, as well as representatives from the Bank's People and Engagement department, will also talk about: tips for success in the field of economics (college and beyond); potential career paths at the New York Fed and in the broader workplace; the role of RAs and college-level interns in the Bank; career-planning resources and mentoring information; and the need for greater diversity in the economics profession. Additionally, staff from Outreach and Education will share an overview of the Federal Reserve System.
