Courses

This DOCC is built around 8 mini-courses, representing the main thematic areas suggested by the European Commission to build a Gender Equality Plan, plus an additional dedicated course on gendered innovations in sustainable housing design. 

The 8 different courses introduce and touch the different aspects of institutional change towards the design and implementation of a Gender Equality Plan: from a general introduction to the dimension of gender in Research & Innovation, touching the basic keys and building blocks of a GEP, until a focus on the 5 thematic areas suggested by the EC for the GEPs: work-life balance; gender in leadership and decision making; gender equality in recruitment; gender in scientific research contents; and gender-based violence. The last, new course on sustainable housing can be considered as an in-depth case study for the integration of gender in the contents of scientific research. All the courses take into account intersectionality as a cross-cutting dimension

Jennifer de Vries

Jennifer de Vries

Dr Jennifer de Vries is a gender strategy and organisational development consultant and researcher (www.jendevries.com). Jen’s passion is to create more gender equitable organisations, where all can thrive. 

Jen completed her PhD at the University of Western Australia, followed by a Postdoctoral Fellowship at the GEXcel (Centre of Gender Excellence) University of Orebro, Sweden. Her particular specialisation is organisational culture change, and how this can be pursued through linking individual development to organisational change. Jen calls this a ‘bifocal approach’, where a clear focus on changing organisations is underpinned by a capacity building approach. 

Jen brings a research driven approach to the strategic design and implementation of gender equity and staff development programs and interventions and has successfully applied the ‘bifocal approach’ to leadership and mentoring programs for groups including women and early career academics. Her expertise in the area of gender equality and transformative organisational change is internationally acknowledged, with clients based in Australia, New Zealand, UK and Europe.

A continuous strand running through Jen’s work is her design and facilitation of women’s leadership development programs and her expertise in the areas of mentoring and sponsorship for women. She was commissioned by Universities Australia Executive Women and the LH Martin Institute to write Mentoring for Change, a guide to establishing good practice programs across the sector. Her subsequent research examining sponsorship practices is now available as Sponsorship: Creating Career Opportunities for Women in Higher Education, published by Universities Australia Executive Women.

 

Jen is now placing increasing emphasis on engaging men in gender equality work and has partnered with Tim Muirhead in developing the Partners for Change program. This cutting edge program brings men and women together as partners in creating organisations where all can thrive.

Tim Muirhead

Tim Muirhead

Over more than 30 years Tim Muirhead, of the “CSD Network” has amassed wide experience in all aspects of personal, community and organisational development.  The CSD Network, established in 1993, specialises in these fields, working with all spheres of government, as well as the business, academic  and not-for-profit sectors.  

At all times Tim works to foster collaborative approaches between people with often diverse knowledge, skills and perspectives. He has a particular interest in building understanding across these different perspectives.  

This has included work between men and women, but also between different spheres of Government; between African communities and mainstream agencies; between residents with different views on local priorities, between community and agency workers, and between (Australian) Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal people. 

The latter has always been done in partnership with Aboriginal colleagues.  As a non-Aboriginal person, Tim explores, with other members of the ‘dominant culture’, what we can do to build a healthier relationship with Aboriginal people. More recently, Tim has worked with Dr Jen De Vries  to bring the lessons of this Aboriginal/non-Aboriginal dialogue to the challenges and possibilities of gender partnership.

Tim is the author of “Weaving Tapestries – the new handbook for building communities” and Finding Heraan, an allegory about how we hold our truths while still remaining open to the often different truths of others.
