ASHE seeks to promote the vitality of Hispanics in the economics profession through education, service, and excellence.

The American Society of Hispanic Economists (ASHE) is a professional association of economists who are concerned with the under-representation of Hispanic Americans in the economics profession at a time when Hispanics represent over 16 percent of the United States ‘ population. Our primary goals include:

• Promoting the vitality of Hispanics in the economics profession through education, service, and excellence;

• Promoting rigorous research on economic and policy issues affecting U.S. Hispanic communities and the nation as a whole; and

• Engaging more Hispanic Americans to effectively participate in the economics profession.

Please see our Institutional Members Directory for more information about each institution below.

I am looking for someone who is willing to discuss a paper that uses a lab experiment in a @ASHE_ASSA session at the 2022 @ASSAMeeting. Please comment on someone you know or self nominations. If the topic helps it will be a Hispanics & Finance session. #EconTwitter
