Gendered Innovations

Screenshot
From Stanford University comes Gendered Innovations, a peer-reviewed project that aims to "harness the creative power of sex and gender analysis for innovation and discovery...[and] to provide scientists and engineers with practical methods for sex and gender analysis." Visitors to this project will find a wealth of resources relating to sex and gender issues in STEM fields, organized into six interconnected portals. These resources include extensive methods for STEM institutions to analyze the role of sex and gender in their organization, key terms and concepts, and checklists to help incorporate this analysis into research projects. Readers will also find case studies showing how these analysis methods have helped create innovation, policy recommendations, summaries of research literature to aid with institutional transformation towards gender equality, and a number of videos. First-time visitors may want to follow the What is Gendered Innovations? link, where they will find a helpful infographic explaining how to navigate the website. Initiated in 2009, Gendered Innovations is directed by Londa Schiebinger, Professor of History of Science at Stanford University, with participation from the European Commission and the National Science Foundation, and international collaboration with more than seventy experts in diverse fields.
