  1. Why I Want You to Study Economics: Increasing Diversity, Inclusion, and Opportunity in Economics; 04-04-18; Central State University College of Business, Wilberforce, OH By Mester, Loretta J.

  1. By: Mester, Loretta J. (Federal Reserve Bank of Cleveland)
    Abstract: Part of the Leaders, Executives, Entrepreneurs, and Directors (LEED) Program. At the Federal Reserve, we are proud of the fact that while the first two attempts at central banks in the U.S. lasted only 20 years each, the Fed is in its 105th year. But Central State is even older. Founded in 1887, the university recently celebrated its 131st birthday. Central State’s designation as a historically black college and its focus on providing a high-quality academic experience to all students are things to be proud of. They make this university a very good place for me to speak about the benefits of an education in economics and the importance of diversity in the field of economics.
