Our application form includes demographic questions about race, gender and sexual orientation. In each case, you are free to choose the “decline to state” option. Declining to provide the information will not affect your EWA membership or benefits. However, volunteering this information will be greatly appreciated, as it will help EWA measure progress toward achieving our goal of serving the increasingly diverse and broad range of education writers. Any reporting of this information will only be done in the aggregate and individual information will remain strictly confidential.
