COVID-19 and the Geography of Vulnerability

The year 2020 is illuminating important differences in the geography of vulnerability. People across the United States have had vastly different experiences of COVID-19 and the many societal stresses exacerbated by or directly resulting from the pandemic. Geographers have the capacity to integrate local and population-scale research, yet examples of this type of integration are rare among studies of vulnerability.

In this edition of the L&W Newsletter, you should note in particular the call for contributions to the TAKE 2021 conference in Porto (see Conferences), the call for proposals for the 2024 Handbook of HRD (see Publications), the Cedefop call for tenders for a 'Feasibility study in VET' and the ILO call for expression of interest in a 'Toolkit for core skills' (see Programmes and Projects). There are no further announcements of conferences so far - no doubt due to the pandemic. However, you can find lots of stimulating projects and publications. And not to overlook: the discount relating to the award-winning book 'Organizational change and development' (see Publications)!

Gendered Journeys: the trajectories of STEM students and graduates through higher education and into employment, in India and Rwanda

This project investigates how far, and in what ways, gender may have an influence in the progress of students through higher education, graduation and progression into skilled employment in STEM fields in India and Rwanda. At present, girls and women are markedly under-represented in STEM areas both as students and in the workforce in most countries across the globe. At the Higher Education level, only 35% of students enrolled in STEM studies internationally are women (UNESCO, 2017a). Addressing this problem is vital in ensuring equitable access to quality education and meaningful work, and is crucial for countries seeking to prioritise equitable economic development, speaking directly to UN SDGs 4, 5, and 6.
