There is growing awareness of the gender data gap, whereby women are underrepresented in research data, leading to inequitable outcomes when research findings are used to design real world technologies, products, environments, processes and policies.

This presentation will outline a study conducted to better understand the wider sociotechnical system in which the issue occurs, locate the key pain points driving the outcome and identify design solutions. In total, 43 ideas were developed that could be implemented by universities to address the gender data gap in research.

The presentation will conclude with an outline of how the University of the Sunshine Coast is incorporating sociotechnical systems approaches in its Athena Swan program.


Monday 5 September, 1:15 to 2:30 pm AEST
