The University of Edinburgh has been running a project for two years on ensuring that international development research is done in a way that takes into account gender inequalities. The project was initially a response to the Global Challenges Research FUND (GCRF) Gender Equality Statement but it has grown far beyond that.
The project produced a wide range of accessible tools and resources to support STEMM researchers in carrying out gender sensitive research. The team is running an online launch of their website and toolkit on 1 October at 11 am: Gender Sensitive Research: Lessons from GCRF and beyond
The event is open to all, so you are very welcome to join!
Gender Sensitive Research: Lessons from GCRF and beyond (1 October, 11.00 – 12.30)
Spurred by the gender equality requirements attached to GCRF research, genderED, (the University of Edinburgh’s hub for the study of gender and sexualities) has developed a range of resources to help researchers, particularly those in STEMM, design gender sensitive research projects. The resources are designed to address gender inequality in all international development research projects, as well as other areas of research.
Join our online event for:
- first hand examples of gender sensitive international development academic STEMM research projects;
- examples of successful efforts to build gender sensitive research capacity in Higher Education;
- learn about this growing funding agenda and the lessons that all areas of academic research can learn from international development projects;
- learn about genderED’s resources to support gender sensitive research and conversations about it within your research team.
Presentations will include:
- Gender Sensitive Human Computer Interface Design, Dr Maryam Mustafa, Department of Computer Science, Lahore University of Management Sciences, Pakistan.
- Gender and Engineering in Humanitarian Technologies, Dr Samer Abdelnour, Department of Management Sciences, University of Edinburgh, UK.
- Building Gender Sensitive Research Capacity in Higher Education, Dr Sarah Ssali, Dean of the School of Women and Gender Studies, Makerere University, Uganda.
- Dr Karen Salt, Director of Equality, Diversity and Inclusion, UKRI
With an introduction from Prof Jonathan Seckl, Senior Vice Principal for Policy and Planning, University of Edinburgh.
