Demystifying a Career Path in Economics and Advancing Diversity
October 23, 2020

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” to be held on Friday, October 23, from 2.30-4 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 becoming 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 Human Resources and Outreach and Education groups, will also talk about: tips for success in economics education (college and beyond) and the economics profession; 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 field of economics.
