  • The Dynamics of Virtual Work | The Gender & ICT Blog
    labour whether paid or unpaid that is carried out using a combination of digital and telecommunications technologies and or produces content for digital media The Action is organised into four Working Groups one of which on Creativity Skills Knowledge and New Occupational Identities is chaired by Juliet Webster The rationale for this Working Group is that the processes by which new forms of work occupations and skills are formed are still poorly understood In this group we aim to understand and theorise these processes We consider changes in the class and other structuring relations of virtual work particularly gender relations We examine transformations in work processes working time and place and the blurring of boundaries between the public and the private domains between paid and unpaid labour Our focus includes manufacturing and white collar occupations We also consider the management of work in virtual teams changing forms of workplace collectives and of individualism and the emergence of new forms of occupational identity In November 2014 we will be organising a high level international workshop Theorising the Gender Relations of Virtual Work More information about this workshop will be available later Search for Contact IN3 Av Carl Friedrich Gauss 5 Parc

  • The gender gap in the studies of science, technology, computing and languages: secondary students’ and teachers’ expectations and motivations. | The Gender & ICT Blog
    dominated setting where women tend to occupy positions entailing less status and power Eagly 2001 It also means that women hardly participate in the design and production of technological services and tools Sáinz Pálmen García Cuesta 2012 Similarly there is a dearth of men in occupations such as nursing or primary school education This subject matter has been vastly documented by the international scientific community and continues being a topic of concern for both scientists and policy makers Jacquelynne Eccles and collaborators Eccles Parsons et al 1983 expectancy and value theory of achievement related choices has inpired a lot of international studies about this phenomenon Some other motivation based theories such as Albert Bandura s social cognitive theory Bandura 1997 Bussey Bandura 1999 as well as gender socialization theories such as Jacquelynne Eccles gender socialization framework Eccles 1987 or Sandra Bem s theory on gender schemas 1986 among other authors have also provided empirical support to this phenomenon They share the common premise that men and women continue making career related decisions congruent with gender roles and stereotypes From early years men and women are socialized to act accordingly to those gender roles Eccles Parsons 1982 Eccles 2008 The school and family contribute to transmit and reinforce those stereotypical beliefs as well as individuals academic and occupational expectancies Eccles Roeser 2011 Sáinz et al 2012 Furthermore teachers tend to have more success expectancies for boys in mathematics and technology whereby they also expect that girls perform better in the subject areas related to humanities and social sciences This has an impact on how competent boys and girls think they are in those subject areas their scores and the choice related to those subject areas Bandura 1997 Eccles Parsons 1983 These and other influences could explain why boys are more likely

  • Flows of human resources in science and technology. | The Gender & ICT Blog
    improvement of communication and information technologies Also science has become a global phenomenon that relies on the feedback of networks foreign talent and knowledge from other research teams The mobility of scientists plays a double role in strengthening professional careers and providing mechanisms of acquiring new talent in R D and innovation systems Although mobility and diffusion of knowledge has always been linked the extension and complexity of the phenomenon has generated a significant change in the state of the question Statistical data from the OECD and OIM International Organisation for Migration show its quantitative and qualitative importance which has implied the use of the term brain circulation Meanwhile data indicates that each country and scientific culture knowledge areas public and private sector have their own specific characteristics Often this diversity is ignored and mobility of qualified personnel is treated as a homogeneous phenomenon The circulation of scientists however can only be counted if the scientists concerned return to their country of origin Sometimes however they do not return due to personal preferences insufficiencies in the scientific structure of the country of origin or for other reasons Even if we consider only this type of leave return mobility the consequences for each actor their professional trajectory and research centres is often extremely different The objective of this project is to establish the impact of the inflows and outflows of highly skilled human resources on a individual professional trajectories and b on the science and technology systems of the sending and receiving countries We maintain that both levels of analysis are interconnected contributing firstly to the construction of scientists identity and secondly the science that is produced at a national level The attraction and retention of talent personified in the most valuable researchers is one of the most important elements that

  • The Professional Trajectories of Women in the ICT Sector: Employment Dynamics and Public Policy Responses | The Gender & ICT Blog
    This project was concerned with advancing our understanding of why women remain so poorly represented in ICT professions and with how public policy has responded and can respond to this issue Through an analysis of statistical data and research literature in Spain and the UK we found that girls and women s low levels of participation in ICT careers start in secondary school when they are driven into non computing studies through either gender stereotyping or disillusionment with the curriculum By the time they enter employment even those with computing qualifications often opt for other areas of work The culture of the work and the organisation of working time in the sector create two key pinch points for female employees One is at maternity when many women leave computing or are inappropriately placed on their return to work Another is in mid career when the combined pressures of caring work career demands and ageism in the sector edge them out of senior positions The obstacles confronting women in computing in the two countries are very similar but their policy and practical responses to problems have been very different In the UK the most prominent recent public policy initiative was a national resource centre the UK Resource Centre for Women in Science Engineering and Technology UKRC The UKRC was established to co ordinate the activities of a vast range of stakeholders and interest groups and to implement measures to address women s under representation in science engineering and technology including ICT in education employment and cultural life In Spain a series of smaller scale measures with more focused ambitions were established under the umbrella of the Gender Equality provisions of the Plan for Advance Plan Avanza 2006 2010 Both encountered significant ultimately fatal challenges to their long term sustainability largely due
