About this video

Can we harness the creative power of sex, gender, and intersectional analysis for discovery and innovation? Does considering gender add a valuable dimension to research? Does intersectional analysis take research in new directions?

In this module, experts speak on how researchers can integrate sex, gender, and intersectional analysis into the design of their research, where relevant, can lead to discovery and improved research methodology. These factors enhance excellence and can be critical to the interpretation, validation, reproducibility, and generalizability of research findings. Funding agencies and peer-reviewed journals are increasingly requiring “sex as a biological variable,” gender as a cultural variable, or intersecting social factors, such as ethnicity, socioeconomic status, age, etc., in research proposals and manuscripts.

Prior to the webinar, participants are encouraged to read: Sex and Gender Analysis Improves Science and Engineering (for more details check the Tools section of this page). After the webinar, participants will get an overview of research agendas and tools for inclusive analysis.
