Radcliffe Public Policy Center fellow Marilyn Carr organized a panel discussion titled “Policy Issues in Gender, Science, and Technology for Development: The International Dimension,” on Monday, April 30, at the Harvard Faculty Club. The discussion was co-presented by the Once and Future Action Network (OFAN), an alliance of nongovernmental organizations, academic institutions, and international development agencies which work to incorporate women’s needs and perspectives in mainstream science and technology, and the Gender Advisory Board of the United Nations Commission on Science and Technology for Development (UNCSTD).
