Another important part of our work focusses on awareness-raising issues. This includes sensitization work concerning gender equality, as well as gender roles, gender diversity and intersectionality. The intersection of gender and race in particular plays an important role in the context of scientific North-South partnerships like the CRC, which is why we want to raise awareness to the research process as both gendered and racialized.
Besides addressing the women working at the CRC, we want to encourage male members to reflect on privileges and hierarchies as well. Thus, we open several events for all genders.To get a picture of our work in this context, you can find a list of our previous activities below:
