1. Gender, language, empowerment, Giuliana Giusti (UNIVE)
This presentation will provide insights on how linguistic structures are formed by gender bias: drawing mostly on examples from English and Italian. In General, it will explore the multiple ways in which language interacts with the construction of gender identity since linguistic meta – competences can enhance language use in an equal opportunity perspective.
2. Available tools for promoting gender sensitive communication, Maria Sangiuliano (UNIVE),
For Research Organizations interested into promoting internal structural change and make their Institutional Communication gender sensitive, it is important to take stock of existing available tools and guidelines. The presentation will focus among others on the UNESCO Gender and Media Guidelines, the UNDP Principles on Gender Sensitive Communication and the Antwerp Chart on Gender Sensitive Communication in and by Academic Institutions from the H2020 Project. Reflections on how these guidelines can be applied to ICT-IST research organizations will also be shared.
3. Q&A and knowledge sharing session
This session is aimed at discussing specific issues raised in the presentations more in detail; it will also provide the opportunity to all EQUAL-IST partners to share their knowledge on the actions on Institutional Communication foreseen in their GEPs and to gather inputs from presenters and other participants on the first envisaged steps of their implementation
