Start date 19 August 2019 3pm UTC

In the new era of feminist foreign policies, advances must be made in how to integrate gender dynamics into think tanks. In this webinar, Josephine Tsui who has supported researchers and think tanks will chair a discussion on how think tank leaders can increase the quality of their research by being proactive in understanding the gendered dynamics within research organisations.

Josephine Tsui will discuss contemporary gender issues regarding think tanks. This includes: the gender pipeline (leadership and power), considering gender throughout the research cycle, the gendered data value chain, and the gendered political economy of knowledge.
