1. Taking into account gender - and the disparities and opportunities that
gender presents in particular situations - to support students in achieving
their dreams and/or exploring options that they may not consider BECAUSE OF
their gender.

2. Replace "gender" with "race/ethnicity"

3. Replace "gender" with "disabilities"
