WORKSHOP DESCRIPTION
The concept of economic inclusion has been articulated in several ways, but essentially means to create equitable access to resources and opportunities that support self-sufficiency and economic security. Research on economic inclusion covers a broad range of subtopics focused on:

  • Identifying and dismantling access barriers to resources, opportunities, services, and human rights (e.g., discrimination in lending and employment; access barriers to investment capital among women, Black, indigenous, and people of color; entrepreneurial ecosystems)
  • Measurement and remediation of economic inequality and disparities that maintain disadvantage and marginality (e.g., gender and racial wage gaps; living wage campaigns)
  • Creation of new opportunities and support structures (e.g., community-based credit unions; small business incubators; supplier diversity programs; micro-loans; mentorship programs)

This workshop is designed to expose participants to current research on economic inclusion, heighten their understanding of research challenges, and provide professional networking opportunities.
