The Washington Post and Bloomberg published an op-ed article underscoring the need to develop a future cadre of Black policymakers to address racial inequalities. They highlight in particular the AEA's Summer Mentoring Program, "which for more than 20 years has been the most extensive networking and professional development workshop for Asian American, Black American, Hispanic American and Indigenous American students who aspire to become PhD economists." They also mention the AEA's Summer Minority Training Program, which will be hosted by the historically Black college, Howard University, this Juneteenth Weekend.
