Project Digital Me ends

The Digital Me project ends today, September 30, 2019. Over the past three years, MExLab ExperiMINTe, the student laboratory of the University of Münster, and the Institute of Information Systems at the University of Münster, in collaboration with the working group Gender in Physics, have developed IT for girls to get young women into IT-related careers. Of course, the website will remain online after the end of the project, so that all interested persons can continue to inform themselves about IT professions.

Field phase of the project Gender in subdisciplines of physics completed

After a few months, the time has finally come to complete the field phase of our survey of physicists in the context of the project Gender in Subdisciplines of Physics. Now comes the exciting time of data preparation and analysis. We thank all concerned institutions and interviewed people for their support!

Presentation about gender in surveys

In addition to questions of gender research in the field of physics and other subjects of the STEM area, our group also deals with methodological aspects of empirical social research. At the annual meeting of the Fachgesellschaft Geschlechterstudien 2019, Prof. Cornelia Denz and Tim Ziesmann shared our research results in this area with the scientific community and presented a lecture on “Gender aspects in the process of surveys”.
