Londa Schiebinger is the John L. Hinds Professor of History of Science at Stanford University and Director of the Gendered Innovations project. From 2004-2010, Schiebinger served as the Director of Stanford's Clayman Institute for Gender Research. Over the past thirty years, her scholarship has analyzed the history of women's participation in science, the structure of scientific institutions, and the gendering of human knowledge.

Professor Schiebinger discussed Gendered Innovations: Tools of Sex and Gender Analysis for Research, a large collaborative project involving the US, Europe, and Canada, at the Gender Summit 3 North America 2013 (GS3NA). This project provides scientists and engineers with practical methods for sex and gender analysis, and develops case studies as concrete illustrations of how sex and gender analysis leads to new knowledge and innovation. Integrating gender analysis into basic and applied research ensures excellence in science and engineering research, policy, and practice. Gendered Innovations harnesses the creative power of gender analysis to discover new things.
