genderATlas won a 1st prize at the International Cartographic Exhibition in Washington, D.C.

At the 28th International Cartographic Conference in Washington, D.C., USA, our atlas project genderATlas für die Schule won the first jury prize in the category educational cartographic products. The jury stated:

“A very well thought through mini-atlas that explores gender issues for women and men. This version specifically aimed at school children to promote understanding of equality and support research initiatives.”

We are extremely happy about this award! The atlas, which is a sub-project of the regular genderATlas was funded by the Bundesministeriums für Bildung (BMB) in 2016 and developed by a team around Elisabeth Aufhauser and Christiane Hintermann from Universität Wien. The technical implementation was done by Manuela Schmidt based on the prototype by Florian Ledermann. A huge thank you to everyone involved!
