The economics profession lacks gender and racial diversity, so interventions at the graduate and professional level have been introduced to minimize the effect of the “leaky pipeline.” Since economic educators lack training in classroom management and student interaction skills, I present interventions to increase diversity and inclusion by developing a sense of belonging at the principles level. I introduce low-cost interventions that target classroom management and student interactions for those who are interested in finding new ways to increase representation in undergraduate economics. To increase diversity in the economics profession we need interventions that will attract more diverse students and minimize attrition by establishing a career path.
