The Institute for Gender and the Economy (GATE) is partially funded by private donations from corporations and individuals who wish to support the centre’s mission. As part of the centre’s activities, we also have launched an online 5-course specialization on Coursera, “Gender Analytics: Gender Equity Through Inclusive Design.” We acknowledge that these engagements have the potential to create a material conflict of interest. We have developed processes for monitoring and reviewing our activities that help to ensure that our research is conducted impartially, consistently and accurately.
All funds received are administered by the University which acts as a safeguard to ensure that funds are spent responsibly, and in accordance with any terms and conditions attached. Every effort is made to uphold the University’s reputation for fairness, integrity and honesty; most importantly, the entitlement of students and employees to equitable treatment. The University also expects of its members the highest standards of ethical conduct in every aspect of research, in accordance with the University’s Policy on Ethical Conduct in Research. When publishing the finding of research, the University Policy on Conflict of Interest – Academic Staff requires faculty members to disclose the source of funding in the publication unless the faculty member has obtained approval to do otherwise.
We also work closely with our academic leadership and other stakeholders to ensure that any potential conflicts of interest are fully disclosed. You can find a full listing of our corporate partners here and other donors here.
