Invitation – 2022 Research in Color Conference: A Global View of Economics Happening: August 12, 2022

To whom it may concern,

My name is Chinemelu Okafor and I am writing to invite members of your organization to a conference hosted by The Research In Color Foundation. This year’s conference will be held virtually on Friday, August 12th, 2022 from 9am – 12pm viaZoom in partnership with the Federal Reserve Bank of New York. We are asking you to support our mission of diversity and inclusion by forwarding the attached flyer to members of your organization. With your help, RIC hopes to reach a larger audience of potential mentors, mentees, and allies.

The Research In Color Foundation (RIC) is a 501C(3) non-profit organization which seeks to increase the number (and improve the retention) of scholars of color in economics and economics-adjacent disciplines, through mentorship and financial support. Through a mentorship centered approach, RIC matches minority students interested in pursuing a doctoral degree in economics and economics-adjacent fields with seasoned economists as mentors. The mentees and mentors work collaboratively on a 8-month long independent research project that mirrors the expectations of a Ph.D. program. These mentees are then given the opportunity to present their research projects to their mentors and other interested parties at our annual Research In Color Conference.

This year our conference will feature keynote speakers Prof. Dania Francis and Prof. Anna Stansbury who will discuss our conference theme: A Global View of Economics, as well as two panels with an all-star line-up of speakers.

Below you will find our conference schedule of events, three flyers, and the link to register for the conference (here). In addition to advertising this conference to your organization members, we would also appreciate the opportunity to discuss ways we can partner with your organization and expand the reach of our impact.

Sincerely,

Chinemelu Okafor, Founder & President

It will be on Tuesdays and Thursdays, 10:30-12:20.This course is an interdisciplinary introduction to various aspects of contemporary Japan, including its political and economic systems, modern history, and society. After a brief overview of history, the lectures focus on key institutional and social pillars of Japan’s postwar system, including political parties, the bureaucracy, the catch-up system of economic development, the social system (including the role of women, gender issues, and diversity in Japan), the education system, religion, and Japan’s relationship with other countries, such as the U.S., Korea, and China. The course provides students with a basic understanding of Japan in the post-World War II period. It is designed as preparation for students who will be going on to more advanced studies of Japan and Asia, as well as for those who want only one basic course about Japan.
