Prof. Londa Schiebinger is the John L. Hinds Professor of History of Science at Stanford University. She received her Ph.D. from Harvard University in 1984, and Directed the Clayman Institute for Gender Research at Stanford from 2004-2010. This talk identifies three major approaches to gender in science: 1) efforts to increase the number of women; 2) programs to remove bias and barriers from the institutions of science; 3) sex and gender analysis to create new knowledge. The talk, which was given at Forschungszentrum Jülich as part of the Jülich Lectures series, treats each approach, but focuses on introducing the EU/US Gendered Innovations project. This project—genderedinnovations.eu—develops state-of-the-art "Methods of Sex and Gender Analysis" for basic and applied research in science, medicine, and engineering. From the start, sex and gender analyses act as additional "controls" (or filters for bias) to provide excellence in science, medicine, and engineering research, policy, and practice.
