Methodology for Gender in science,health & medicine, and engineering

Dear Colleagues, This is the latest methodology for gender in science, health & Medicine, and Engineering!  Check it out.  All best, Londa

 

launching at:  http://genderedinnovations.stanford.edu/

 

gendered innovations employ sex and gender analysis as a resource to create new knowledge and technology.  The Gendered Innovations project:

1.    Develops practical methods of sex and gender analysis for science, health & medicine, and engineering.

2.    Provides case studies as concrete illustrations of how sex and gender analysis leads to innovation.

 

Three years in the making, the project was funded by Stanford University and the European Commission.  It draws upon experts from across both the EU and the US.

 

Have a look!

 

All best,
