GENDER-NET Plus Workshop – Integrating Gender Analysis into Research – Paris – November 16 & 17

The CNRS team, coordinator of the GENDER-NET Plus project, is looking forward to holding the first workshop for the scientific community of the 13 Gender-NET Plus research projects! It will take place in Paris, and will last one day and a half, on November 16-17.

The workshop aims to explore and discuss approaches for integrating gender and sex-based analysis into research content, across various topics and disciplinary perspectives. It is an opportunity for GENDER-NET Plus researchers to network and learn about novel methods and perspectives advancing gender-aware science. Moreover, guest speakers, who are leading experts on the topic, will contribute to the discussion and facilitate the workshops sessions.

The goal of the workshop is to produce joint documents that will provide best practices and insights to researchers beyond GENDER-NET Plus on how to better integrate sex and gender in scientific research. 

See the agenda below.
