In accordance with our Fourth Annual 2022 Sadie T.M. Alexander Conference theme of “Accountability and Community,” we will discuss how to hold educational institutions and corporations accountable for the progression of economic scholars who identify at the intersections of race and gender. We will also dive into what it means to be an ally of The Sadie Collective and announce the 2021-2022 Allies of the Year selection process to be distributed in February 2022 at the Brookings Institution.
