Forschungskolloquium INCHER-Kassel: Gender diversity in academia: Does it matter for research outcomes?

Referent: Professor Mathias Wullum Nielsen (Department of Sociology, University of Copenhagen, Denmark)

Abstract: This presentation examines the relationship between gender diversity and research outcomes. Existing research on the topic primarily focuses on how team gender diversity influences scholarly productivity in terms of citations and publication rates. Far less attention has been devoted to the question of how the intellectual contents of research disciplines change as they become more gender diverse. Based on empirical evidence from three disciplines, this presentation will illuminate impact-, content- and status related dimensions of gender diversity in scientific research and discuss how the broadened repertoire of perspectives, values and questions resulting from gender diversity may render research more responsive to the full gamut of societal needs and expectations.
