Welcome to ICGR 2021
Despite some advances being made in the area, topics related to gender research remain pertinent and are gaining momentum in a changing society. It is thus important to empower and to develop research on specific gender topics, in order to acquire a clearer understanding and to obtain important insights. Now in its fourth year the International Conference on Gender Research intends to be established in the cutting edge of gender research and we welcome everyone researching in this area to present their work and to the scientific community.
ICGR is an event which brings likeminded researchers together from across the world. This year the global covid-19 pandemic has caused the event to move online where participants will meet in a virtual space to share their research and discuss the issues closest to gender research.
Personal Message from the Conference Chairs
In a period characterized by many challenges and a continuum of economic and social changes, there is a clear need to develop gender research at the centre the new social-labour-economic paradigm. The evolution observed in the last decades, through a progressive time path, changed the conventional gender employment segmentation in consequence of cultural changes, which has given more relevance to women’s education and to their rights in the labour market. These changes were observed at different levels: women participation in the labour market increased, the obtained levels of education, female employment in the economic sectors of activity, with women reinforcing their participation in management, and also a set of public policies and a legal framework was provided to empowering the women’s work. The increase of women labour participation and the convergence to gender equality have been contributing, in a sustainable way, to social inclusion and poverty reduction, to the development of living standards and economic growth.
The organizers of the ICGR2021, aim to promote new insights and discussion about the current global perspectives, considering the differences in theoretical and subject fields’ approaches across time, countries and economic sectors, with its implications and with the aim to improve and share the scientific knowledge on gender research. So, the academic scientific community of researchers, academics and students; policymakers, and national and international development institutions and all those who wish to contribute to the debate on gender research are invited to participate in the next ICGR 2021, which is being supported by the Department of Economics, Management, Industrial Engineering and Tourism, at University of Aveiro, Portugal, on 21-22 June 2021. We look forward to welcoming you all online, in June 2021!
