Vortrag "How sex and gender analysis creates better research in technology and engineering"
Londa Schiebinger will talk about how we can harness the creative power of gender analysis for discovery and innovation. She will identify three strategic approaches to gender in research, policy, and practice: 1) „Fix the Numbers of Women“ focuses on increasing women‘s participation; 2) „Fix the Institutions“ promotes gender equality in careers through structural change in research organizations; and 3) „Fix the Knowledge“ or „Gendered Innovations“ stimulates excellence in science and technology by integrating sex and gender analysis into research. For this lecture, Schiebinger focuses on the third approach. She will discuss several case studies, including gender and fairness in machine learning and gender in robotics.
