Community Participation in the 2022 AWP Conference & Bookfair

The information below compiles demographics for presenters of accepted events in the 2022 AWP Conference & Bookfair.

Gender and race/ethnicity data and response rate for presenters is consistent with data we have made public over the past several years. AWP uses responses in the aggregate only (in general sums and percentages) in reports to our funders and members. AWP never discloses anyone’s individual characteristics. AWP does not share individual characteristics with the subcommittee members who evaluate proposals.

Visit the How Events Are Selected for details about how the 2022 Subcommittee made their selections. AWP is grateful to the subcommittee for their hard work in providing a balanced and inclusive schedule for the 2022 conference.

Thank you to everyone who took the time to provide this information. Over the next couple of months, we expect the data to change slightly, because some panelists must step off events if they are committed to more than two accepted events. Event organizers will select replacements. AWP limits the number of events in which any one presenter may participate in order to increase the participation and inclusivity of the conference.
