Strengthening the self- and external perceptions of young women STEM professionals (YWSP) during career entry and advancement - a research project outline

Julia Schnittker1, Kerstin Ettl1, Friederike Welter1,2

1Universität Siegen, Deutschland; 2Institut für Mittelstandsforschung Bonn, Deutschland

This short paper outlines a project that explores the influence of the self- and external perceptions of young women STEM professionals (YWSP) at the time of their career entry and advancement. The empirical basis for the project is 72 in-depth interviews, which will be conducted in different regions of Germany with women entrepreneurs and women managers in STEM fields as well as with other experts and stakeholders. Additionally, existing statistical data concerning the occupational situation YWSP in Germany will be analyzed. The objective of the project is to identify the opportunities, challenges, and barriers that YWSP face, especially the role perceptions play in this regard. In doing so, we aim to achieve a better understanding of the situation of YWSP in Germany. By accurately deriving recommendations for actions, we aim to contribute to increased gender equality and an increased number of high-qualified women in the male-dominated STEM areas.

"A nice brain teaser"

Alice Ashcroft

Lancaster University, United Kingdom

Careers in computing seem to be well placed to allow gender parity. The tools of the trade don’t require any of the most common gender stereotypes. And yet, talented, educated women avoid going into the field – why? The preliminary research reported in this paper focuses specifically on computer programming, since coding is an area that has shown a strong statistical bias towards males with up to 92% of programmers being male. This paper aims to uncover and examine any differences in the coding abilities and approach of males and females.

Gender Audit - zur sprachlichen Fassbarmachung von Geschlechterstereotypen in der Online-Kommunikation

Simone Burel

Universität Heidelberg, Germany

Studien aus der Psychologie und der Linguistik deuten darauf hin, dass Geschlechter in Gesprächen, Texten oder anderen Kommunikationssituationen weiterhin stereotyp, also mit fest verbundenen Bedeutungsassoziationen wahrgenommen werden. Deren Materialisierung auf Wortebene möchte die Studie in der Online-Kommunikation nachweisen und belastbare Muster für ein Keyword-basiertes Gender Audit anbieten.

'It's your period and therefore it has to be pink and you are a girl': users' experiences of (de-)gendered menstrual app design

Johanna Levy

Universität Granada, Spanien

Menstrual apps are digital versions of period calendars that support observation, analysis and interpretation of a variety of physical and mental states as well as behavioral patterns associated with menstrual cycles. The present paper discusses the preliminary results of a qualitative study addressing users' experiences of and responses to gendered design during app-supported menstrual tracking. The study demonstrates that some users are aware of and react to the gendered assumptions built into menstrual apps' graphic designs and technological features. Moreover, I show that users engage in alternative uses of menstrual apps thus broadening the forms of use intended by app designers and developers.

What’s in a name? An Online Survey on Gender Stereotyping of Humanoid Social Robots

Robin Ladwig1, Evelyn Ferstl1,2

1ZAG – Centre for Anthropology and Gender Studies Freiburg University, Deutschland; 2Centre for Cognitive Science Freiburg University

This study investigated whether humanoid social robots are implicitly assigned a gender, which then influences evaluations and acceptance of the devices. To assess stereotyping, a naming task was used. Pictures of robots were presented in a mock marketing survey, and the participants were asked to provide a name for the device and rate them on a number of characteristics and select potential tasks for them. Forty participants filled out the web-based survey. The results showed overwhelming preferences for male names, which were more pronounced for older participants and for those with a more feminine self-image. Robots that were rated higher on agency and lower on communion attributes were more likely to be assigned technical tasks, and they were less likely to be accepted into participants’ personal lives. Thus, technological artefacts are subject to stereotyping. These findings are discussed within the framework of feminist technoscience.

Der Kritisch-Transformative Raum „Elitesport“ als Phänomen

C.K.M. Crutzen

VIS, Niederlande

Der Dualismus von Entwerfen und Benutzen wird dekonstruiert in den kritisch-transformativen Raum „Elitesport“, einen der Experimentierräume der Enhancement-Technologien. Es wird plädiert für die Ermächtigung der Athleten zur Eigenverantwortung über ihren Körper und die Freigabe der Enhancement-Technologien in ihre Verfügungsgewalt, wenn sie sich aller Folgen und Risiken voll bewusst sind. So wären die Benutzenden der Technologie, die Athleten, auch die Entwerfenden, und als solche hätten sie das Selbstbestimmungsrecht auf die Art, wie sie ihren Körper verändern wollen. Ein solches Vorgehen würde auch eine faire individualisierte Teilnahme aller Athleten an allen Wettbewerben eröffnen, ohne Ansehen von Geschlecht und Zwischengeschlecht, ohne dass Behinderte mit Hightech-Prothetik, oder Cyborgs mit robotischen Applikationen oder irgendjemand sonst als Monster oder Alien ausgegrenzt werden muss. Die Neukonstruktion des Apparatus „Wettbewerb“ wäre die Voraussetzung eines eigenverantwortlichen Handelns von Athleten. Ein Apparatus „Wettbewerb“ soll den kritisch-transformativen Raum „Elitesport“ und die darin unbegrenzt benutzbaren Enhancement-Technologien verlässlich machen.

Building an online community of care: Tumblr use by Transgender individuals

Blake W Hawkins1, Oliver Haimson2

1University of British Columbia, Canada; 2University of California, Irvine

Scholars are starting to understand transgender people use social media to create online communities to discuss aspects of their lives. Tumblr, a social media site that allows people to share information often via tags targeted for specific groups (e.g., #ftm, #mtf, or #trans), is a virtual space commonly used by transgender people to seek or share information. We collected interview data on English-speaking transgender people’s experiences to understand the connection between Tumblr and transition-related mental health posts. Tumblr was described as a safe space for many transgender people who might lack a physical community of support when dealing with their mental health while transitioning. This paper contributes a description of the ways transgender people use Tumblr to meet their mental health needs. Analyzing transgender Tumblr users’ interactions and experiences while transitioning provides an opportunity to understand a population that faces high rates of mental health challenges.
