Workplace Climate Survey

In Fall 2019, The Canadian Women Economists Committee of the Canadian Economics Association administered a workplace climate survey for economists using the National Opinion Research Center (NORC) at the University of Chicago (read more about the survey)

We are delighted to announce the release of survey results.

The complete survey report is available here (French version). You may also view the report info-graphics. The 2019 Report on The Status of Women can be found here

The release was accompanied by three exciting panel discussions on diversity in the Canadian economics profession, featuring insights from some of the prominent figures in the profession. In case you missed one or more of these events, the Zoom recordings are available below.
