EPWS ANNUAL CONFERENCE 2022 – Gender, intersectionality and inclusion in the EU research context
November 22 @ 9:45 am - 3:45 pm
The up-to-date vision of science requires to approaching and developing science with a vision capable to comprise sex and gender as a research dimension, as well as to consider how gender interweaves with other systems of power linked to social categories, such as ethnicity, social class, disability, sexual orientation, age, etc., producing vulnerabilities and obstacles. Intersectionality, accordingly, is one of “the must” in the present scientific landscape.
The 2022 annual conference is dedicated to the concept of intersectionality, by focusing and discussing the following questions: How do
we as scientists –and in particular as women scientists– intend to interpret intersectionality, a vision that requires to respect and promote the differences and peculiarities characterizing human beings and social dimensions? How do we manage the multiple dimensions involved in basic research and technological innovation? What kind of support would we want from EU research and gender equality policies? Which policies and measures would we like to encourage the EU to continue or to initiate in this respect?
In this conference, EPWS wishes to give voice to its associations, which are invited to present and discuss their visions, experiences, and challenges about intersectionality. A section of the conference will regard -as representative- the case of women migrants/refugees involved in science; needs and ongoing initiatives will be analyzed, also through the narratives of women scientists of various disciplines and national backgrounds directly involved in the matter.
