Gender Matters: Innovation through Intersectionality: A German-Canadian Research Dialogue - Geschlechterfragen: Innovation und Intersektionalität: Ein Deutsch-Kanadischer Forschungsdialog

Type of event:
Sonstiges
Description:

Large-scale social and technological developments, such as the current global refugee crisis, climate change, rapidly developing technologies like artificial intelligence and machine learning to name a few, pose broad challenges for humanity. Moreover, different populations are very unevenly affected by these developments.  
For research and innovation to be effective, it is vital that research design recognizes and attends to the difference social differences make. The intersections of gender, race, class, Indigeneity, sexuality, disability, religion, citizenship, etc. are central to the challenges before us: how do we develop new technologies that don't merely reproduce and amplify current sexist and racist biases? What must health care delivery in refugee camps look like to effectively address the different ways women, men, and children experience the traumas of war and affected by displacement? How do immigration policies construct who counts as ‘family’ and who does not? How do we ensure that climate change will not further deepen the existing gendered inequalities between the global north and the global south?
Gender Matters/ Geschlechterfragen brings together a panel of German and Canadian gender researchers from across a range of disciplines. Drawing upon case studies from their research, these experts will discuss the pivotal role academic intersectional gender research and training play in enhancing equality, equity, and innovation for the global good. Other topics of discussion will include: the role of universities in developing student training and curriculum to equip a new generation of researchers to address the uneven effects of global developments; and strategies for funding agencies to create capacity for intersectional gender analytics across all disciplines.
The panel discussion is open to the interested public. Other stakeholders from the academic community as well as major funding agencies such as DAAD, SSHRC, NSERC, CIHR, DFG, etc. will also be invited.
This public event will be preceded by an invitation-only event.  This semi-public round table brings together Canadian and German research funding agencies (CIHR, DFG, etc.) as well as leaders from German and Canadian postsecondary institutions. Panellists will address the strategies and initiatives various agencies are currently undertaking to enhance equality, diversity, and inclusion in the postsecondary and research sector as well as supports for intersectional gender research in the Canadian and German Research infrastructure.
