Theme: The 2021 Winter Meeting will commemorate 50 years of SWS! Our programming will focus on the contributions to and impact that SWS has made on the discipline of sociology as we celebrate the progress we have made. It will also look towards the future by exploring how to build and retain connections to one another in ways that will make everyone in our community feel visible, included and heard. We will emphasize three areas: (a) gender non-binary and trans scholars, and how to make their experiences and sociological research on these areas visibly important to the organization and beyond; (b) race and ethnicity, looking intersectionally when considering the experiences of women in society; and (c) social class and the needs of scholars from under-resourced institutions or who have limited economic means. We will consider ways they can participate more fully in the life of the organization. Gender, race and class continue to be at the forefront of considerations that must be attended to for SWS to continue to grow and flourish in the 21st century. We will honor and build on the foundational work of those who established the organization, while we recognize and work on those issues that will help SWS reach its full potential.
