Everything you ever wanted to ask about gender

We can organize on calendar based on people’s availability
Also, what about having students present their work (e.g. Thanammal on gender and institutional set up in India; Rosemirta on gender and trade issues in Uganda) within the LGI team first and then to the wider public?
We can involve non-gender scientists as soon as there is a suitable piece of research

  1. 1. Gender that makes science better ( a basic intro to what is gender research and why)
  • Why is G important/relevant for ag research?
  • Look at AE/KD presentations from Naivasha – justifications for G in ag research
    • o Based on lit review – why looking at G and conceptual and methodological implications
  • Gendered Innovations book examples
  • Our coaching tracks as a few key and convincing examples
  • Attach key documents for further reading?

  1. 2. Strategic and integrated gender research: the example of L&F
  • Distinctions and links
  • What is strategic gender research – L&F examples
  • Could include the R agendas – integrated and strategic
  • How strategic gender research feeds integrated research in L&F?
  • What are key strategic gender research we want them to know – GTA, gender norms, ownership study – introduce here and more depth in future seminars
  • Making the case for the relevance of strategic G research for non-gender science (technical science) in L&F

  1. 3. Do no harm vs accommodative and gender transformative approaches (GTAs)
  • Relate to L&F gender strategy and the continuum housed there
  • Part of seminar 1? Part of Naivasha presentation – link to that seminar
