The Gender and ICT research group (GenTIC) is excited to invite you to its upcoming research seminar “Exploring Gender Gaps and Barriers Towards Inclusive Gender Equality in the Digital Society”.

 

When: Monday, October 2, 2023

Time: 10:00 h – 14:00 h

Venue: UOC’s Interdisciplinary R&I Hub (Building C, floor 0 – Rambla del Poblenou, 154 Barcelona)

Registration: To participate, please register at this link.

 

GenTIC was established in 2006 at the Internet Interdisciplinary Institute (IN3) of the Universitat Oberta de Catalunya to explore and examine the gender dynamics involved in the design and use of scientific and technological innovations, with a specific focus on ICT (Information and Communication Technology) and STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics). Over nearly two decades, we have developed basic research and applied activities related to research areas such as the gendered factors shaping young people’s motivations to choose ICT and STEM studies and occupations; the development of gender roles and stereotypes about scientific and technological fields during childhood and adolescence; co-design, analysis and evaluation of Equality, Diversity and Inclusion policies, particularly in the research and innovation system; digitalization and gender; and feminist research design and methods in the digital age. More recent research lines also include the analysis of health challenges and care dynamics from a feminist intersectional approach, and the study of power relations and organisational change to prevent the perpetuation of discriminations.

 

During this seminar, the GenTIC group will discuss its recent research findings and share ongoing project activities with students, researchers, academics, and anyone interested in addressing gender inequalities to overcome existing barriers to equity and inclusion in the digital society. We will also explore how to achieve inclusive gender equality in the science and innovation system, along with various theoretical and methodological approaches related to applying an intersectional gender perspective to current societal challenges.
