Commitment to Equity, Diversity and Inclusion in SHAPE America journals

October 2021

SHAPE America strongly values equity, diversity and inclusion in all areas of what we do, and we remain committed to it as part of our strategic mission. This includes our journal publishing program, as we believe that the authors, reviewers, and editors engaged with the journal must reflect the diversity of the health and physical education field. With this in mind, we remain committed to inviting diverse and underrepresented individuals to offer their expertise and time to help lead and contribute to the journals.

SHAPE America’s journals serve multiple levels (K-12 and higher education) and multiple disciplines (research, physical and health education, sports, coaching, recreation, dance). Further, while the journals are based in the United States, their reach and impact are global.

As we move forward, we will continue to commit to inviting and including diverse and underrepresented professionals to be a part of this critical work. Please reach out to Laura Strecker at [email protected] if you would like to learn more about how to get engaged.
