Gendered Innovations harness the creative power of sex, gender, and intersectional analysis for innovation and discovery. Considering these approaches may add valuable dimensions to research. They may take research in new directions. For a summary, see Sex and Gender Analysis Improves Science and Engineering (Nature, 2019). See also Gendered Innovations 2: How Inclusive Analysis Contributes to Research and Innovation.

The peer-reviewed Gendered Innovations project founded by Londa Schiebinger, 1) develops practical methods of sex, gender, and intersectional analysis for scientists and engineers;2) provides case studies as concrete illustrations of how sex, gender and intersectional analysis leads to innovation.
