The National Economic Association will commemorate the 100th anniversary of when Sadie T.M. Alexander received the doctorate degree in economics beginning with the 2021 ASSA sessions.  Our conference theme is 100 Years of African American Economists.  Three sessions will focus on the history of African Americans in the economics profession from the 1920s to 1970s.   The NEA hopes that you will attend our virtual discussion of this history and other topics of importance to Black communities by registering for the ASSA meetings.  The NEA also plans to commemorate the 100-year milestone with events throughout the 2021 year.

Panel Title: Gender Stratification for URM Economics and Sociology Faculty: Structural and Experiential Dimensions

Panel Abstract

This panel will present and discuss data from a recent National Science Foundation- funded project on underrepresented minority (URM) faculty career trajectories for both women and men. URM scholars often face both informal and structural barriers to full participation and thriving in predominantly white and male academic environments. The NSF-funded research suggests that these barriers are experienced especially by women of color. In addition, the panel explores the issue of gender stratification for URM faculty in the disciplines of economics and sociology. The academy is a deeply gendered institution, and men predominate in the top ranks of the professoriate. Recognition of these inequalities has focused on the concept of departmental climate. This construct refers to people’s perceived work environment including workplace practices, social interactions, and relationships (Wharton and Estevez 2014). The NSF-funded research asks whether URM women economists and sociologists experience inclusion and exclusion differently than men of color in their respective academic departments and in their disciplinary networks. The project findings are based on a survey of 198 black and Hispanic sociologists and economists, either currently or formerly employed in academia, who obtained their PhDs between 1995 and 2006. In addition, findings include trends from a set of pilot in-depth interviews from these same survey respondents, and a network analysis based on co-authorship of publications. Finally, the panel will discuss several policy recommendations around hiring and promotion, rewards for teaching and advising, pay raises for administrative work, and travel funding.
