1) Where are the Men? Exploring Gender Diversity
On Tuesday, April 8, 2008, three nationally-known speakers will present 
their views on this topic and engage in dialogue with participants. They 
collectively hold a wealth of experience and insight in the field of 
early education.

This is a Policy Brief out of the University of Indiana written by Shaun
