Professor Londa Schiebinger on Why Gender Bias Hurts Research and How Gendered Innovation Builds Value


Stanford Professional Women invites you to our first event of the New Year on Tuesday, January 19, 2016 at Stanford with Professor Londa Schiebinger from Stanford's History Department. Professor Schiebinger will be discussing her work on gender analysis for discovery and innovation. Professor Schiebinger will identify major approaches to gender in science research, policy, and practice and share several examples of how integrating sex and gender analysis into research enhances excellence in science and technology.  Prof. Schiebinger's work has been devoted to teasing apart three analytically distinct but interlocking pieces of the gender and science puzzle: the history of women's participation in science; gender in the structure of scientific institutions; and the gendering of human knowledge.
