The objective of this technical cooperation is to deepen the understanding of the social determinants of gender inequality in Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Mathematics (STEAM) participation and achievement by: (i) implementing an experimental pilot in Colombia to evaluate the effectiveness of the materials developed within the framework of the Gender in Mathematics and Science Learning project (RG-T2589) to promote the interest of girls of 4-5 years in mathematics and science; and (ii) conducting research based on big data computational techniques to continue the line of investigation initiated under RG-T2589 to explore the tone of the STEAM discourse and the extent of gender-based stereotypes amongst Latin American social media users.
ACCOUNTABILITY MECHANISM OF IADB
The Independent Consultation and Investigation Mechanism (MICI) is the independent complaint mechanism and fact-finding body for people who have been or are likely to be adversely affected by an Inter-American Development Bank (IDB) or Inter-American Investment Corporation (IIC)-funded project. If you submit a complaint to MICI, they may assist you in addressing the problems you raised through a dispute-resolution process with those implementing the project and/or through an investigation to assess whether the IDB or IIC is following its own policies for preventing or mitigating harm to people or the environment. You can submit a complaint by sending an email to MICI@iadb.org. You can learn more about the MICI and how to file a complaint at http://www.iadb.org/en/mici/mici,1752.html (in English) or http://www.iadb.org/es/mici/mici,1752.html (Spanish).
