Equal Opportunities Group - Monthly Meeting
Tomorrow (22 Feb)
Ingela Nyström: Gender Diversity at Work – the Vi2 Case
Location: ITC 4307, Time: 13:30-14:30

Ingela Nyström comes and gives a presentation entitled "Gender Diversity at Work – the Vi2 Case."

Abstract: In this talk, I will present my lab from the perspective of gender and diversity. In today’s society, many organisations have gender diversity on their agenda. So also Uppsala University, the first university in Sweden, where we aim for gender balance and diversity in all activities in order to achieve a higher quality at all levels of the organization. To reach this, we specifically encourage applicants of any gender and with different birth background, functionality, and life experience in our recruitments. However, good recruitment statistics is not a result per se. I will also give my views on how our academic leadership foster mixed environments, where job satisfaction – and thereby higher scientific quality - is reached independent of gender. In fact, we as leaders are role models who either become (or do not become) successful in recruiting, promoting, and thereby retaining women.

I welcome all seminar participants to discuss this matter and share your experiences with me.

Maike Paetzel: Four Month Corporate Research: Scientific Results & Lessons Learned
Location: ITC 407, Time: 15:30-16:15

This autumn, I've spend four months with a big entertainment company doing research on interactions with embodied conversational agents. In my seminar, I'll talk about one of the projects I have worked on, discuss the architecture of the conversational agent as well as the setup and results of a user study we conducted with the agent. Apart from gaining a lot of knowledge for my PhD, I've also experienced the full spectrum of what it means to do corporate research. Some of those lessons learned I'll share in the seminar as well.
