Galloway, Nicola; Rose, Heath – ELT Journal, 2014
With the increasing use of English as a Lingua Franca (ELF), it is no longer appropriate to associate English purely with "native-speaking" nations, but with a global community of users.

McCall, Mary – ProQuest LLC, 2017
In the last 25 years, little progress has been made within business and technical writing research towards challenging the belief that workplaces and classrooms are gender neutral--by default, white male.

Johnson, Kerri L.; McKay, Lawrie S.; Pollick, Frank E. – Cognition, 2011

Farrington, Jeanne – Performance Improvement Quarterly, 2012

However, despite improvements, equal pay for equal work and equal opportunities for hiring,…

Abdul-Jabbar, Wisam Kh. – Review of Education, Pedagogy & Cultural Studies, 2017

Majeski, Robin A.; Stover, Merrily; Ronch, Judah – Educational Gerontology, 2016

The authors address this…
