Four new training initiatives online are planned under GE Academy in May and June.

A training session titled “An introduction to the Gender Equality Audit and Monitoring (GEAM) Tool” will be held on May 11 from 10:00 to 12:15 CET. Its aim is presenting an open-access software – the GEAM Tool – conceived to implement gender audits (the diagnostic analysis of a research organisation or a university from the gender equality standpoint usually applied before the design of gender equality plants or initiatives) in an effective and standardised way without specific previous knowledge. Trainers will be Jörg Müller and Sergi Yanes (Universitat Oberta de Catalunya) and The registration form and more detailed information are available here.

Two hands-on sessions aimed at learning how to use the GEAM Tool will be held on May 14 from 9:00 to 13:00 CET (trainer: Jörg  Müller) and May 21 from 10:00 to 11:45 CET (trainer: Sergi Yanes). The sessions will allow participants to test the software and understand how it works in practice. Click here.

A Roundtable titled “Intersectionality and its sister approaches” will be held on May 31 from 9:30 to 11:00 CET. The event will focus on the interaction, both on a theoretical and methodological level, between the intersectional approach and two other approaches – the Gender+ and that centred on the concept of diversity – which place gender inequality in a broader perspective than those focused on the gender perspective alone. Three panellists will participate: Lise Rolandsen Agustín (Aalborg University, Denmark), Mieke Verloo (Radboud University, The Netherlands) and Victoria Showunmi (University College London, UK). Ea Høg Utoft (Aarhus University, Denmark) will facilitate the discussion. Click here for registration and information.

Another roundtable on intersectionality, titled “Intersectional practices in Academia”, is planned for June 2 from 14:00 to 15:30 CET. This second event will dwell on intersectional practices for institutional change in research organisations, on the basis of hands-on experiences in different research settings. Five panellists will participate in the event: Andrea D. Bührmann (University of Gottingen, Germany), Barbara Hey (University of Graz, Austria), Gemma Irvine (Maynooth University, Ireland), Ingrid Schacherl (Vienna Academy of Fine Arts, Austria), and Sofia Jabeen (London School of Economics, UK). Also this case, Ea Høg Utoft will serve as the facilitator of the meeting. Click here to register.
