Scholars and Advocates for Gender Equity

AERA Standing Committee

Our Mission

Our name reflects our focus on research and action for gender equity and invites members who engage in gender equity research and advocacy to look to the committee as a resource and voice for their interests. Building on past success and looking to the needs of the future, our focus is:

  1. To provide opportunities through outreach and training for all AERA members to become effective scholars and advocates for gender equity.
  2. To provide information and recommendations to AERA Council about ways to support scholarship and to help inform educational policy and outreach on gender equity issues. 
  3. As distinct from SIGs and Divisions, to provide venues in the AERA Annual Conference Program for the membership to participate in and contribute to discussions of gender equity scholarship as well as its implications for policy and practice.

We work closely with the Scholars of Color Committee and the Social Justice Action Committee to address equity and social justice issues within AERA. We work with other national organizations serving gender equity to disseminate research and contribute to national educational policy affecting gender equity in education.
