Statement on Anti-racism

We in the Duke Financial Economics Center stand with our counterparts at Duke University in condemning the systematic and continued injustices against Black people in the United States. We cannot continue this way as a nation, and we are committed to listening, reflecting, and engaging in the conversations that are critical for creating measurable change.

These are not just words. DFE’s long-time mission has been to empower ALL Duke undergraduates with the knowledge, advising, mentorship, and technical and life skills that allow them to enter the finance field uniquely prepared to succeed. We work in the knowledge that historically and still today many people are underrepresented in the financial markets, including BIPOC, LGTBQ, and gender diverse people. We work, with campus and industry partners, student groups, and alumni, to change this. We work toward a future of equal justice, opportunity, and representation.
