The inaugural Race in the Marketplace (RIM) Forum will be an international gathering of diverse scholars. The vision? To lay the foundation for a transdisciplinary research network which will collaboratively advance our understanding of the role of race (and its intersecting socio-political constructs – e.g. class, gender, ethnicity, religion, and sexuality) in the marketplace.
