Welcome to the blogs of the GeDIA Network! The GeDIA Network unites 22 members who each have a unique perspective on gender and digital innovation. We come from different institutional, disciplinary, cultural, and personal positionalities - and this diversity is a great strength of the network.
We are women change makers and their male allies, committed to social change towards greater equity and justice in gender and wider, intersectional dimensions. Every time we meet, we learn a lot from each other.
While the GeDIA Network gives us a chance to come together, search for synergies, and develop a joint research agenda, this series of blogs is a celebration of the diversity of our perspectives. We hope you enjoy!
