Wednesday 26 August

10:00 - 12:30 Conference: Introducing the Gender Dimension to STEMM Higher Education
Location: Grand Ballroom A, Registration: Grand Ballroom Lobby, B2F, Annex Building

The Rome Declaration on Responsible Research and Innovation in Europe (2014) offers some advice to organisations related to science, technology, engineering, mathematics and medicine (STEMM) on institutional changes to foster awareness, know-how, expertise and competence of scientific research and innovation. These include adapting curricula and developing trainings. This session will feature several perspectives on gender diversity and gendered innovation in engineering culture in Europe and Korea, as well as presentations on gender performance in high performance computing and on gender differences in distance learning at universities in Uganda.

14:00 - 17:00 Conference: Improving Diversity of STEMM Talents: K-12 Programmes
Location: Grand Ballroom A, Registration: Grand Ballroom Lobby, B2F, Annex Building

The Rome Declaration on Responsible Research and Innovation in Europe states that “Early and continuous
engagement of all Stakeholders is essential for sustainable, desirable and acceptable innovation”
- this has to start early as various stereotypes are often formed about science being a “male”
sphere start from childhood. This session will explore how to build the foundations for a gender diverse pipeline
of talents in science, technology, engineering, mathematics and medicine (STEMM) right from kindergarten
to the first 12 years of education (K-12). To attract more female talent into STEMM fields,
we have to challenge gender stereotypes from an early age. This can include examining
the attitudes mothers have toward their daughters’ selection of courses in STEM fields, school curricula, and gender
differentiated learning experiences in school science laboratories and seasonal science schools.

15:30 - 18:00 PARALLEL SESSIONS

PARALLEL SESSION 1: Mainstreaming Gender into Asia-Pacific’s Research, Innovation and Development Goals for more effective and sustainable outcomes
Location: Ruby Hall, 22F

This Parallel Session will highlight the different circumstances of national research an innovation systems in countries and regions in the Asia-Pacific. The aim is to share experiences and resources prompting multi-national collaborations on advancing Gendered Innovation in the region, and with the rest of the world. Around 15 experts from across the Asia-Pacific region will give a snapshot of their own country or region’s perspective on mainstreaming gender into their national research, innovation and development goals. Both gendered innovations and equal gender representation in STEMM research will be discussed by delegates from Bangladesh, Cambodia, China, Malaysia, Japan, Korea, India, and elsewhere. The Asia-Pacific is a large, dynamic and complex region spanning from Mongolia to New Zealand, and the capacity and potential to advance Gendered Innovation differs from country to country. Differences in cultures, women’s status, stages of development, as well as R&D investment levels make for a rich tapestry of situations. Therefore, it is important to consider the differing potential and needs rather than address the region as a whole. Each country and region will face different challenges in promoting gender-sensitive research and innovations, as well as greater gender balance in STEMM fields. Each will also have different priorities for utilizing gender focused technologies to achieve sustainable socioeconomic development. But there are also shared and universal gender concerns where by collaborating together, we can learn from each other and make better use of available resources.

PARALLEL SESSION 3: Advancing Gender Sensitive Innovation Ecosystems
Location: Maple Hall, 4F

The Session will consider the role of gender as a driver of quality and sustainable technologies in the context Korea’s policy goal to advance creative economy in the Asia-Pacific region. Practical realization of this policy can take advantage of: 1) new directions and opportunities for innovation that draw on scientific understanding of the significance of sex and gender differences; 2) improving the creative capacity of available human capital by more fully engaging the existing pool of highly educated women in the knowledge and commercial economies, as well as in the knowledge transfer sector; and 3) the trends towards more open, inclusive and user driven innovation practices, which facilitate more effective generation of innovation ideas and their transformation of into products. The underlying drivers for integrating gender are the added value and social benefit of R&D; women’s growing control over consumer budget (estimated at $20 trillion annually worldwide in 2012); opportunities to target women’s need in fields as varied as biomarkers, human-machine interactions, pharmaceuticals, the auto industry and IT. In the area of biomarkers, a market that is expected to reach $25.79 billion by 2016, considering sex and gender differences from the molecular to the population levels can help develop new diagnostic and therapeutic approaches to benefit both men and women, and transform health economics. There is also evidence that addressing the role of gender in human robot interaction can assist development and acceptance of robotics technologies. Research shows that men and women respond differently to ‘male’ and ‘female’ robots. This could enhance opportunities for advancing robotics in: logistics; medicine; healthcare; as well as professional and domestic services.

11:15 - 12:00 Gender Summits Overview: Collective Commitment and Action for Global Impact

Location: Grand Ballroom

The Gender Summit was established in Europe in 2011 as a platform for dialogue where scientists, policy makers and gender scholars could jointly examine new research evidence showing when, why and how gender issues impact on research and innovation outcomes. The aim was to use this platform to create multi-stakeholder consensus on where improvements were needed and who should take action. Since then, the Gender Summit evolved into four regional platforms: Europe, North America, Asia Pacific and Africa and in the process has created new communities of experts and practitioners who understand the needs of their own institutions, countries and regions and are committed to advancing women’s participation in science and technology and to integration of sex-gender considerations in research and innovation. This session will explore the new role that the Gender Summit can now play, namely to facilitate the creation of a global alliance linking these communities and promote multi-national collaborations to achieve global impact. The key output from GS6-Asia Pacific will be the Seoul Declaration. Its aim will be to act as a Call-to-Action for the region. This session will provide participants with the opportunity to comment on the proposed content and to provide advice how the Declaration can be best deployed to establish multi-stakeholder commitment to achieving lasting change.
