Gender in the Global Research Landscape
Report Symposium


Critical issues related to gender disparity and bias must be examined by sound studies. Drawing upon its high-quality global data sources and analytical expertise, Elsevier is developing a comprehensive new report, Gender in the Global Research Landscape, as an evidence-based examination of the outputs, quality, and impact of research worldwide through a gender lens and as a vehicle for understanding the role of gender within the structure of the global research enterprise. The report covers 20 years, 12 geographies and 27 subject areas, providing powerful insight and guidance on gender research and gender equality policy for governments, funders and institutions worldwide. Read more about the report here.

Join us on March 31st in Washington, DC for a report symposium featuring an overview of key findings and a broader expert discussion of the importance of an evidence base to address gender inequality and gender research.

The presentation and networking reception are open to the public at no charge, but registration is required.

Update: Registration is now closed for this event. To receive future updates about the report and other related events, please visit the report website.
