Welcome to the research group Gender/Diversity in Informatics Systems (GeDIS) at the faculty of Electrical Engineering/Computing at the University of Kassel, Germany. 

GeDIS introduces perspectives from gender and diversity studies to computing  to enhance innovation and inclusiveness through a sociotechnical approach.  

GeDIS is part of the interdisciplinary Research Center for Information System Design (ITeG) which focuses on socially responsible IT design.

We run the blog enginesofdifference.org which is part of the interdisciplinary, innovative and experimental activities that go outside of the regular disciplinary and thematic boundaries that are conducted by the Research Lab of the aforementioned group.
