Sadie T.M. Alexander Conference for Economics and Related Fields
Upholding the Standards:
Cultivating Economic Shifts Through Accountability and Community
takes a village
to raise a child,
They say it
so it will take a nation to be strong enough to raise America through it’s institutions to be an adequate ally to the groups who are alienated from achieving agency and freedom.
The assignment of holding financial institutions, corporations, and political parties accountable is long overdue. This call to action by the Black community and from Black women leaders, is a tradition. Last year’s recognition of four pandemics: racism, economic, environmental and notably health highlights there is no time like the present to continue the tradition of Black women holding the world accountable.
With the bigger picture of paving a way for the following generation of economists, researchers, and policymakers in mind, the overarching theme of SACE 2022 is accountability and building community.
Join us to engage in community collaboration on how to combat these tough conversations and gain the knowledge and resources to be a better advocate for the community.
The Sadie Collective will gather hundreds of Black women and allies from across the nation to hear from trailblazing Black women in the industry during our four day hybrid conference experience in Washington, D.C. Events will be hosted at The Brookings Institution and The Urban Institute.
The general conference program consists of 6 panels, 5 workshops, 1 keynote address, 3 remarks/plenary sessions, 1 research reception, 1 award ceremony and 1 community service event. Whether an attendee is virtual or in-person, the curated experience will pair them with mentors and they will hear from speakers from a variety of fields including economics, public policy, business, finance, and related fields.
