Heather Long

Heather Long is an editorial writer and columnist at the Washington Post. Her work often explores how economic trends affect the lives of everyday Americans.

“When you have a lot of women faculty or when you have women who are on the Federal Open Market Committee or presidents of the regional Fed, it does change the conversation,” says Heather Long, editorial writer and columnist at the Washington Post. “It does inspire more people to get involved in the field.” In this podcast, Long discusses her journey in journalism and the importance of diversity in economics.

 

This podcast features conversations with women and underrepresented minorities who are making their marks in the field of economics. Views expressed are not necessarily those of the St. Louis Fed or Federal Reserve System.
