Diversity and Inclusion
The RES are committed to ensuring the conference is balanced and inclusive and actively promote diversity. We strongly encourage submitters to ensure Special Sessions have a good representation of gender, ethnicity and strive to incorporate views from a diversity of economic fields whenever possible. The RES understand that it might be difficult to consider all aspects of diversity and inclusion in anyone single special session and we will aim to achieve this commitment across the number of Special sessions. In this respect, we reserve the right not to accept a Special Session if this is obstructive to the expressed commitment.
