Why the world needs more female scientists: panel on how gender and sustainability relate to building research capacity in the Global South.
CR&DALL and the Gendered Journeys project, funded by the ESRC within the Global Challenges Research Fund (GCRF), will be presenting a Gender and Sustainability event as part of the University of Glasgow, School of Education’s ‘Educating Today to save Tomorrow’ series in the run-up to COP-26 in Glasgow.
This is a panel event featuring speakers from the Global South discussing to what extent gender and sustainability are part of initiatives related to building research capacity in these contexts; and to what extent achieving gender equality and sustainability are part of the wider development landscape in these contexts. This comes out of Gendered Journeys, an international research project exploring gender and other inequalities in STEM higher education and employment, with team members in the University of Glasgow, the University of Rwanda and the Indian Institute of Management Calcutta. The panel will be jointly organised and promoted by the Gendered Journeys team and CR&DALL.
Speakers: Lydie Irababarira (University of Rwanda), Jolly Rubagiza (University of Rwanda), Aparna Roy (Centre for New Economic Diplomacy, India), Seema Singh (Delhi Technological University, India), Megh Ranjani Rai
