Gender Equity Expert Panel: Exemplary & Promising Gender Equity Programs, 2000.
Department of Education, Washington, DC.
The U.S. Department of Education developed the Gender Equity Expert Panel to identify promising and exemplary programs that promote gender equity in and through education. This panel of experts reviewed self-nominated programs to determine whether they met four criteria: evidence of success/effectiveness in promoting gender equity; quality of the program; educational significance; and usefulness to others/replicability. Submitted for review during the review cycle from 1996-99 were 100 gender equity products, programs, and policies. Eleven exemplary and promising programs are recommended here. The updated reviews in this report provide descriptive and evaluative information on the 11 programs, one recommended as exemplary and 10 as promising. The 11 summary reviews in the report are grouped into four topics areas that generally correspond to expert subpanels: gender equity in vocational/technical education and school-to-work; gender equity in mathematics, science, and technology; prevention of violence and sexual and racial harassment in higher education; and gender equity in teacher education and professional development.
