Content and learning outcomes

Course contents

  • The general foundation of the course is gender research with intersectional perspective, i.e. how different power structures and discrimination grounds influence and sometimes reinforce one another, with a special focus on equal opportunities, equality, diversity and inclusion in the technical social sector.
  • Equal opportunities and equality have been identified as two global aims for sustainable development, and in order for engineers to be able to contribute to reaching these aims they need knowledge of what unequal opportunities and inequality can imply at societal and organisational level, how it is connected to technology and sustainable development, and understand how unequal opportunities and inequality are recreated and changed.

  1. Account and illustrate for the concepts of equal opportunities, equality, diversity and inclusion
