CIES has eight standing committees: Nominations, Publications, Special Interest Group (SIG) Oversight, Awards Committee, Finance and Investments, Gender and Education, Under-represented Ethnic and Ability Groups (UREAG) and New Scholars.
The Gender and Education Committee fosters attention to gender issues in the CIES and promote the inclusion and professional development of women. The Committee organizes an annual symposium at the CIES conference, to which all CIES members are warmly invited. Symposium presentations reflect the breadth, depth, and quality of the research, programming, and advocacy occurring in the field of gender and education. Recent topics have included: gender as a cross-cutting theme in research, policy, and advocacy; family life and academic stress; gender and peace education; and globalization, gender, and education. The Committee also hosts events including pre-conference workshops, lunchtime speakers, and networking receptions; and engages in research on the inclusion of women in CIES and the annual meeting.
