EBHS Announcement of Diversity and Inclusion Fund and Request for Donations

Posted on: September 19th, 2021 by Olli Turunen No Comments

The Trustees of the Economic and Business History Society recognize that black lives matter and affirm our commitment to mutual respect and social justice for all. As an organization, we recognize that our own track record in terms of racial diversity leaves much to be desired. We pride ourselves on our inclusion of different fields and methods, our geographic and political diversity, and our collegiality, but we still have much to do to diversify our organization.

Real action requires work, resources, and willpower. The EBHS commits itself to realizing the ideals of equality and justice for all. The Board of Trustees has recently approved and created a Diversity and Inclusion Fund which will provide financial support to diverse graduate students and early career scholars to attend our annual meetings. To help seed such funds, the Board has authorized a seed fund of $1,000 from the Society’s holdings to start the fund. The Board of Trustees and the Diversity and Inclusion Committee respectively ask for donations to the fund to help create a solid financial base from which we can provide a consistent number of grants that can have a real and meaningful impact on the academic success of scholars at the beginning of their careers.

On behalf of the Board of Trustees and the Diversity and Inclusion Committee, thank you!
