How to improve the development process of products and services through gender equality and diversity? How to integrate gender equality and diversity perspectives in the existing processes? The answers need not be difficult to find once the gender glasses are in place. It is required a certain amount of knowledge about gender mainstreaming but it is a myth that it is difficult to implement the gender equality and diversity perspectives in a company’s or organization’s activities.
The aim of the Mäta Jämt project is to develop a method to measure the effects of gender equality and diversity activities in ICT and educational environments. The measurement method will be discussed and validated in this final conference. Tools, methods and examples how gender equality and diversity perspectives benefit research and innovation will be presented and discussed.
The project is funded by Interreg IVA North, County Administrative Board of Norrbotten and Regional Council of Lapland. The project partners are Luleå University of Technology and Oulu University supported by Ritaharju Community Centre in Oulu and local SME’s.
