GSN to reach wider audience with training opportunities
During its virtual 2022 third quarter meeting on 16 September, the IITA Gender Science Network (GSN) highlighted some of the gender research activities that network members have carried out in the past couple of months. Members tracked progress and exchanged new ideas for better gender integration into the work that members do in the Institute.
IITA Gender Specialist and GSN Coordinator, Steven Cole, talked about major events happening within the One CGIAR. He highlighted that the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation made their support official for the first business cycle of the Harnessing Equality for Resilience in the Agrifood System (HER+) project—a gender and social inclusion initiative. He explained how this gives confidence that other potential donors will come in. Cole also stated that many gender researchers are now being hired across different centers, including IITA.
