Gendered Innovation in Science Health & Medicine, Engineering, and Environment

stanford seal

Website, initiated at Stanford University, employs sex and gender analysis as a resource to create new knowledge and technology.

The Gendered Innovations project offers sophisticated methods of sex and gender analysis to stimulate the creation of gender-responsible science and technology, thereby enhancing the quality of life for both women and men worldwide. The goal is to provide scientists and engineers with practical methods for sex and gender analysis.

The website has six interactive main portals:

1. Methods of sex and gender analysis for research and engineering

2. Case studies illustrate how sex and gender analysis leads to innovation

3. Terms address key concepts used throughout the site

4. Checklists for researchers, engineers, and evaluators

5. Policy provides recommendations in addition to links to key national and international policies that support Gendered Innovations

6. Institutional Transformation summarizes current literature on: 1) increasing the numbers of women in science, health & medicine, and engineering; 2) removing subtle gender bias from research institutions; and 3) solutions and best practices.
