It is increasingly being recognised that integrating gender equality into research ‘makes better science’ and contributes to enhanced research excellence. As a result, there is a growing imperative for research projects across all disciplines to engage with questions around how to embed gender and diversity perspectives in their research. However, if these questions are to be taken seriously, they raise fundamental challenges for existing research structures and prevailing norms around how research is done. In this seminar, the presenters draw on their recent research, which sought to embed a gender perspective in a large and complex research project. They discuss the challenges and opportunities of the task and the value of taking a reflexive self-assessment approach to this work.
