Gender Policy Committee and the SAGER Guidelines

The Gender Policy Committee of EASE was established in 2012 with a mission to create, develop and promote the Sex and Gender Equity in Research (SAGER) Guidelines which were launched in 2016. View the list of endorsers.

Now the Guidelines are well established as part of an editor’s toolkit, the Gender Policy Committee and the SAGER Working Group were closed at the end of 2023. The SAGER Guidelines will continue to be promoted by EASE and GENDRO and we will work closely with Shirin Heidari as she continues to promote and expand this work through her role at GENDRO.

The achievements of the Gender Policy Committee will continue to be published on these pages. The work of the Gender Equity in the Editorial Workforce Group has been redirected to the Equity, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) Committee.
