Gender+ Atelier creates collaborative teams for gender research

Posted: June 25, 2017

On June 19-20, 2017, the Office of International Programs hosted the Gender+ Atelier, as the second iteration of the Gender, Agriculture, Energy, and Environment Symposium.

The Gender+ Atelier focused on building on partnerships between faculty across the university and outside research organizations to creatively address thematic areas by collaborating on proposals for funding.  

Presentations at the Gender+ Atelier included discussions of seed funding options, national and international funders and their upcoming strategies and opportunities presented by the Global Food Security Act.  

As was the case last year, the emphasis remained on including gender in transdisciplinary research approaches and applied problem solving. Scholars from all disciplines and methodological specializations were welcome to participate.

Participants worked together intensively with fellow scholars from across Penn State and other organizations including the CGIAR to develop research plans and funding strategies around key topic areas.
