We are interested in sharing knowledge and new understandings in relation to policy development, analysis of challenges and responses in education and employment, critical insights from companies, professional societies and other organisations about the impact of gender equality strategies, as well as perspectives from science and technology studies - and other related issues. We welcome contributions from a variety of disciplines and interdisciplinary perspectives and drawing on a wide range of theoretical frameworks.
