Offer a course on Race, Ethnicity, and Gender in Economics. Some topics to focus on would be:

  • Examining the roles of race, ethnicity, and gender on economic and political theory.
  • Economic status of women in the United States or globally
  • Economic status of racial or ethnic groups in the United States or globally
  • Economic inequality by race or gender - causes and solutions

If your school has a women's studies, gender studies, or ethnic studies department, contact them to see if you can cross-list this course with their depart

For an example of this type of course, see [1].

Even if students of color and women don't opt to take this particular class, offering such a course demonstrates the department's understanding that there are major differences in economic experiences and makes the department more inviting.
