Action-driven approach

- Different actions for different target
populations
- A transversal issue - st ereot ypes.
- Under-represent at ion seems higher

Girl-only events
> 1.000 participants
(incl. families)
> 80 volunteers
Girl-only events
Formal evaluation and details:
Ruiz-Garcia A; Subirats L; Freire A. Lessons learned in promoting new technologies and engineering in
girls through a girls hackathon and mentoring. Edulearn16. 8th annual International Conference on
Education and New Learning Technologies; 2016 July 4-6; Barcelona, Spain.
http://hdl.handle.net/10230/27002
● Effect in families (mothers AND fathers) - identification of “activity for my daughter” when
labelled as “Girl-”
● The world is already extremely labelled (explicitly or implicitly) with activities for boys / girls
Informal feedback:
● “I am surprised that teachers were beautiful” (7-year girl)
● “Where can I find more activities for girls and technology?” - mother
Girl-only events
Needed, but with limitations:
● Extra effort needed. Sustainability?
● They tried, they liked… what’s next for them?
Action-driven approach -
gender perspective in ALL
actions
Gender-balanced events
https://www.upf.edu/web/mdm-dtic/american-space
Gender parity guaranteed in
registration. Effect:
- Tickets for boys quickly
disappear
- Tickets for girls are slowly
taken
- “Push” to relax the gender
requirement to respond to
demand
- But we always get parity
Gender-balanced events
Needed, but with limitations:
● Need to make the message explicit and impact beyond the
specific course
● What about all those girls (and boys) who are not interested in
technology (but are influencers)
Action-driven approach -
gender perspective in
actions targeting girls AND
boys
Actions for girls AND boys
From presentation by Pallabi Sengupta, DTIC PhD seminars
https://www.upf.edu/web/mdm-dtic/talks-and-networks
Actions for girls AND boys
● Mothers overestimate the capacities of babies if they are boys, underestimate
them if they are girls
● Ability and brilliance (boys, later men) vs hard-work (girls, later women)
Actions for girls AND boys
Future professionals, parents…
and current drivers of influence

Gender perspective since its inception
conclusions
Conclusions
https://www.upf.edu/web/mdm-dtic/gender-and-ict
- Complex problem → Complex solutions, all needed!
- Embed gender perspective in all actions. Impressive what you start to perceive when you do
- Communication too focused on the message “there are few women”. Could this have in fact a perverse
effect?
- Focus on making visible the MANY women already in the field and in all type of positions (leadership,
“freak”, social impact, etc)
- Work with girls, with boys, with mothers and fathers, with professionals….
- Trendy topic. Many people willing to contribute. Try to guarantee they do it in the right direction!
thanks!!

Could this have in fact a perverse effect? - Focus on making visible the MANY women already in the field and in all type of positions (leadership, “freak”, social impact, etc) - Work with girls, with boys, with mothers and fathers, with professionals…. - Trendy topic. Many people willing to contribute. Try to guarantee they do it in the right direction!
