There is growing awareness of the gender data gap, whereby women are underrepresented in research data, leading to inequitable outcomes when research findings are used to design real world technologies, products, environments, processes and policies.

In this webinar, Associate Professor Gemma Read examines the wider sociotechnical system in which the issue occurs, locating the key pain points driving the outcome and identifying design solutions. The study produced 43 ideas that universities could implement to address the gender data gap in research.

The presentation concludes with an outline of how the University of the Sunshine Coast is incorporating sociotechnical systems approaches in its Athena Swan program.
