‘Gendered Innovations: Enhancing Excellence in Science & Technology’
How can we harness the creative power of sex, gender, and intersectional analysis for discovery and innovation? This talk will explore AI/ML, gendering social robots, Health & Medicine, Embedded EthiCS. We will discuss how sex and sex interact, how sex and gender interact, and intersectional research. We will also consider policy initiatives at funding agencies, peer-reviewed journals, such as Nature, and universities and research institutions. To match the global reach of science and technology, Gendered Innovations was developed through a collaboration of over 220 experts from across the United States, Europe, Canada, and Asia. Major funders include the European Commission, the U.S. National Science Foundation, and Stanford University. Participants may wish to read: Sex, Gender Analysis Improves Science and Engineering Nature (2019); A Framework for Sex, Gender, and Diversity Analysis in Research: Funding Agencies have Ample Room to Improve their Policies Science (2022).
