GenderEX training programme aim is the integration of a sex and gender dimension in research for early career researchers. The Gender-EX training programme will encourage participation so that knowledge, experience, skills and attitudes are created for, by, and with the participants.
The GenderEX training programme will support participants in recognising and acknowledging the interaction of gender with race, class, religion, sexuality, disability and age and to avoid homogenisation and binary understanding of gender categories. This programme includes an online workshop on Engendering Research in the Natural Sciences and Engineering, targeted at ECRs in Turkey.
Gender EX, Engendering Research in the Natural Sciences and Engineering Training programs will take one-day and the participate in this program will receive the “The Natural Sciences and Engineering Traning” program certificate at the end of the program.
