Jennifer Dahmen-Adkins, Sandra Karner and Anita Thaler wrote a paper, which explains the CHANGE-approach of co-producing gender equality knowledge in great detail. Fancy a read? It's open access (of course!), so just download it here!
On the 6th of January — the Kings Day — the Portuguese CHANGE team organised another brown bag session of the project. The session took place at the Department of Social, Political and Territorial Sciences (DCSPT) of the University of Aveiro and involved the staff of the Department. It was a moment to celebrate this day and of conviviality where besides tasting the delicacies of this holidays season, it was also possible to present and discuss the developments of the CHANGE project in UA.
On November 21 - after an excellent key note by Yvonne Benschop (about the challenges of postfeminism) - Anita Thaler and Jennifer Dahmen-Adkins presented (at a conference at IHS Vienna) how with an intersectional approach social gender justice in academia and research can be improved. They especially pointed out how the very concept of co-producing gender equality knowledge can help overcoming resistances and support the implementation of gender equality plans in science and research organisations. In a panel discussion afterwards Anita Thaler talked about strategies and experiences on the interface of research and policy (with Birgit Buchinger (Solution, Salzburg), Eva Czernohorszky (Wirtschaftsagentur Wien), Roberta Schaller-Steidl (Bundesministerium für Bildung, Wissenschaft und Forschung), Moderation: Angela Wroblewski (IHS)).
