To ensure representation of women on the executive committee, it is recommended that,
- the President, on the advisement of the committee, should ensure, before the end of their tenure, that a reasonable number of men and women should be nominated for executive board positions.
- if a gender balance fails to manifest, further measures should be adopted.
To ensure representation of women in conferences, it is recommended that,
- SSHAP meeting organizers ensure a gender balance in the three keynote invitees over a three-year period. If an invited speaker cannot attend in one year, they should be invited in the following year.
- when considering invitations, refer to The Up Directory, Women in Philosophy, and Women in Logic.
- follow the chairing policy suggestions of the British Philosophical Association / SWIP Good Practice Scheme at SSHAP meetings and include them in the welcome packet for all SSHAP meetings.
- gender balance in chairing sessions and panels should be sought.
- keynote speakers should be fully funded and advertised equally.
- childcare provisions, if available, should be advertised to all participants in advance of the meeting.
- childcare provisions should be sought by conference organizers.
- gender balance in executive committee meetings should be sought.
- where SSHAP raises funds for conferences and seminars, 1(a)-1(f) of the BPA/SWIP Good Practice recommendations should be followed.
