8° Cumbre de Género – Norte y Latinoamérica

Lugar y fecha

Ciudad de México

27 al 28 de abril de 2016

Sobre la Cumbre de Género

La Cumbre de Género (Gender Summit) es un evento global que nació en 2011 en Bruselas, Bélgica, como una iniciativa de instituciones europeas y que se ha extendido en países como Sudáfrica, Corea, Estados Unidos y Alemania. Los resultados de esta Cumbre influyen en la construcción de políticas públicas a través del diseño de planes estratégicos de acción hacia la igualdad y equidad como motores de la investigación científica y tecnológica.

Objetivo

En 2016 se llevó a cabo el 8° Gender Summit Norte y Latinoamérica que contó con la asistencia de más de 300 personas y reunió a representantes de instituciones homólogas de Latinoamérica a una reunión previa para promover la Cumbre en Latinoamérica. Bajo el lema “Ciencia sin fronteras: mejorando el impacto a través de la conexión entre las dimensiones de género, geografía, educación y disciplina científica”, la 8° Cumbre de Género enfocó su programa en la inclusión de la visión de género en el campo de la Ciencia, Tecnología e Innovación (CTI).

El evento resaltó el papel de la ciencia como una herramienta para eliminar las fronteras de género, geográficas, disciplinarias, educativas, culturales e institucionales. El tipo de ciencia capaz de romper dichas barreras proviene de un ambiente de diversidad e inclusión, elementos clave para la innovación.

Organizadores

La 8ª edición fue organizada por el Conacyt en colaboración del Consejo de Investigación en Ciencias Naturales e Ingeniería de Canadá (NSERC, por sus siglas en inglés); la Fundación Nacional para la Ciencia (NSF, por sus siglas en inglés) y el Banco Interamericano de Desarrollo (BID).

 Closing Remarks

Side Event 1 – Access with invitation only

The Competitiveness and Innovation Division at the Inter-American Bank is leading a research project aimed at advancing the knowledge on the economic costs that LAC economies are facing due to the underrepresentation of women in science, technology and innovation activities. A Call for Papers was launched in December 2015 and five proposals were selected on February 2016 over a total number of 33 submitted proposals. The number of proposals received shows the interest of researchers on the issues of gender gaps in STI in LAC. The chosen studies cover topics related to: gender gaps in scientific productivity and the effects on scientific performance in Mexico; the impact of gender-neutral incentives to researchers in Paraguay; the costs of entrepreneurship gender gaps in aggregate productivity in Chile; evidence of the existence of glass ceiling in research in Uruguay; and the effects of gender diversity on firm innovation in Colombia. The preliminary results of the research papers were presented in this technical workshop on Day 0 of the GS8. Given the quantitative nature of the papers, the aim of the workshop was to explain the methodology applied in each paper, present preliminary findings and discuss together strategies to improve the quality of the papers. Each researcher received comments from a designed discussant, from the audience and from the IDB team. The main messages derived from the preliminary results of this research project  were also presented in a parallel session on Day 1 of the GS8. Final results of the research project will be available on September 2016. Download the session programme

Side event 3 – Access with invitation only

Workshop: Creating Futures in Science

Objective: The workshop targets women at early career stage who participate in the CONACYT training program for indigenous women. The aim is to adapt and transfer the experience of applying the scenario approach from the European context to Mexico and to Latin America, to reflect the realities of the science landscapes and women's lives in the region. It will also help create a 'training-the-trainer' toolkit. 

Participants: 30 indigenous young women who are studying postgraduate degree in the University of Guerrero, holding a CONACYT scholarship.

14:30- 18:40

  • Introductions
  • Learning from Experts: Q&A session
  • Learning from Role Models: Group interactive session
