Sexualities and Gender SIG Annual Meeting

This meeting is open to Non Members to also attend.

Join the Sexualities and Gender SIG annual meeting to network with colleagues, learn about the activities of the SIG over the last year and plans for 2021.

Come and find out what the BERA Gender and Sexualities SIG is all about.

  • What’s SIGnificant for Sexuality Education Research and Practice?
  • Shape what the SIG can do for you in by participating in a bespoke creative activity that will help us plan forward how the SIG can enhance its ‘SIGnificance’ in the year ahead.
  • One of the priorities for us is to widen our network and membership, ensure that the SIG is doing all it can to meet the needs of our UK gender and sexualities researchers, and to connect with our parallel groups internationally.
  • Share what you are currently working on in a 3 minute slot (e.g. this could be a live research project, a paper, a grant proposal, a participation event – and you can talk, share a video, show a ppt slide, sing, dance …). If you would like a 3 minute slot, please contact EJ ( by 1st April.

This meeting will be hosted on Zoom, where you will have the opportunity to network and speak to other SIG members. You must register via this page to receive the zoom link the day before the meeting
