Appointment of First GEA Policy Officer


The Association has recently appointed its first GEA policy officer, Professor Miriam David who, as many of you know, has extensive knowledge and research experience in the field of gender and education. We are delighted that Miriam has accepted the post and we look forward to regular reports from her, which will both inform the position which the Association takes on any specific issue, and provide members and other readers of the GEA website with an up-to-date picture of what is happening in policy terms. Miriam’s main brief is primarily to get to grips with UK issues, but it is also hoped that she will have time to consider issues in other countries too.  Welcome Miriam.

Gaby Weiner, Chair, GEA
