GASAT (Gender and Science and Technology) provides a forum for individuals and organizations concerned about the inclusion of girls and women in the world of science and technology, from early childhood to work environments. The program of GASAT 7 focused on four major themes: (1) recruitment and retention of girls and women in science, engineering and technology; (2) developing a feminist perspective on science that recognizes the diversity of experiences of women, girls and indigenous peoples; (3) creating a more inviting climate for work and study and developing strategies for change; and (4) gender-sensitive science, engineering and technology curricula.
