Transcript of "Gender & Team Science: Evidence-based Guidance for Practice and Policy"

  1. 1. Holly J. Falk-Krzesinski, PhD Vice President, Global Academic & Research Relations GENDER & TEAM SCIENCE: Evidence-based Guidance for Practice and Policy Gender Summit 4 - Europe 2014 Plenary Session – Maximising Capacity of Science Human Capital and Knowledge Communities June 30, 2014
  2. 2. 2 INTRODUCTION "Team research, especially interdisciplinary research, is characterized by synergies among experts that can transform both scholars and scholarship“ – John Cacioppo, PhD, the Tiffany and Margaret Blake Distinguished Service Professor in Psychology, The University of Chicago, from the Arete Initiative website http://arete.uchicago.edu/ (2010)
  3. 3. 3 Collaboration, Networking and Teams  Connecting researchers and resources in pursuit of large collaborative projects  Compiled a 1K+ reference Team Science resource library (and have read most of the abstracts in it!)  Published primary research findings that inform effective collaboration, especially for science teams  Developed and taught one of the very first-ever Team Science graduate courses, co-developed an online Team Science course  Chaired the Science of Team Science Conference for 3 years  Paid team science consultant for almost two dozen US universities 3
  4. 4. 4 The Challenge  Both interdisciplinary research and collaboration in science are on the rise  Team Science produces more highly impactful research  Despite decades of efforts, disparity persists between participation of men and women in science  H2020 includes an explicit objective: “Gender balance in research teams.”  Small body of research literature on gender and team science  Paucity of the application of the research to policy and practice
  5. 5. 5 The Opportunity
  6. 6. 6 The Foundation  Gender Differences in Research Collaboration  Gender Diversity and Team Productivity/Performance  Gender Differences in Expertise Recognition and Evaluation of Performance  Collaboration Strategies and Networks

  10. 10. 10 Gender differences in research collaboration  Real or Perceived Gender Differences in IDR Participation  Bibliometric approach to examine gender differences in the propensity to collaborate by fields, disciplines, and forms of collaboration  Experiences that stretch a person may foster the ability to work in teams
  11. 11. 11 Gender diversity and team productivity/performance  Gender differences in scientific productivity (scientific publishing) and lack of research collaboration  Gender heterogeneity on teams and relationship to higher quality output  Gender diversity has a positive effect on team processes and performance
  12. 12. 12 Expertise recognition and evaluation of performance  Differential expertise recognition of individuals in groups by gender  Role of gender in recognizing expertise and contribution to a team  Gender composition of teams impacts performance evaluation (team effectiveness)  Recognition of women’s contribution to collaborative work
  13. 13. 13 Collaboration strategies and networks  Gender as a predictor of network centrality  Gender differences in network reach  Gender, network, connectedness, and success  Research networking tools help uncover connections

  19. 19. 20 The Charge  Translate Empirical Evidence Into Policy and Practice  Commitment for change because research indicates that it leads to better science  More research to identify problems and potential causes  Research for intervention development and testing  Forums for sharing information and effective practices
  20. 20. 21 SciTS Listserv  The Science of Team Science (SciTS) listserv facilitates conversation among individuals who are engaged in, studying, or managing team science, in the US and internationally. The listserv is maintained collaboratively by the SciTS Team at the National Cancer Institute, Division of Cancer Control and Population Sciences, Behavioral Research Program (http://cancercontrol.cancer.gov/brp/scienceteam) at the NIH.  TO SUBSCRIBE: Send an email with a blank subject line to: listserv@list.nih.gov. The message body should read: subscribe SciTSlist [your full name]. Please do not include the brackets. For example, for Robin Smith to subscribe, the message would read: subscribe SciTSlist Robin Smith. You will receive a confirmation email.  TO POST TO THE LISTSERV: Send an email to SciTSlist@list.nih.gov. Any subscriber may post to the list.  TO VIEW THE ARCHIVES: To view the archives of all previous postings, go to: http://list.nih.gov/archives/SciTSlist.html  TO RECEIVE MESSAGES IN A DAILY DIGEST: The default setting sends you each message as it is posted to the listserv. To receive one daily digest, instead, go to: http://list.nih.gov/cgi-bin/wa.exe?SUBED1=SciTSlist&A=1 and select “digest” as your subscription type.  TECHNICAL PROBLEMS WITH YOUR SUBSCRIPTION? Contact the list administrator, Judy Kuan, at: kuanj@mail.nih.gov. Please be sure to state that your email is in reference to the SciTS listserv.
