WHO WE ARE
We are Ph.D. students in Economics, some of us are “rare voices*”, and others are not. We all believe that our profession could do better both in terms of individual experience and productivity via better allocation of talents. Creating a safe space for diverse voices to express themselves can benefit everybody. Our mission is to keep this discussion open and advocate for change at the institutional level.
WHAT WE DO
 Raising awareness and fostering an open exchange through our workshops. We review relevant scientific papers and reflect during our occasional roundtables with experts in the field.
 Leveling the playing field through our mentoring program and theater workshops to empower PhD students in building networks and mastering challenging environments.
 Promoting institutional change via our guidelines for more inclusive economics departments and regular participation to departments’ public events.
 Creating a safe space for research using our research clusters and our annual Rare Voices in Economics conference. During these events, we create secure and stimulating places to discuss research.
