Biographic information: 

Vanda Černohorská, Ph.D., focuses on gender inequalities from an intersectional perspective concerning issues of digitalization, social resilience and the creation of expert knowledge. Currently, she is researching the issue of the production of gender expertise in times of crisis and post-crisis recovery in the CoRe: Beyond Security - Role of Conflict in Resilience-Building (OPJAK) project at the National Contact Centre for Gender & Science. She also works at the Centre for Science, Technology, and Society Studies at the Institute of Philosophy of the Czech Academy of Sciences, where she researches the impact of digital technologies on the perception of time and wellbeing (Time experience in Europe's digital age - TIMED). In the past years, she explored the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic and related policies on existing gender inequalities as part of the RESISTIRÉ research team or the effect of the European Structural Funds on gender equality in the Czech labour market. Her doctoral research investigated the relationship between digital technologies and the contemporary feminist movement in the Czecho-Slovak region. Her other research interests include the issue of qualitative methods and multi-disciplinary approaches within social research and co-creation practices related to gender-sensitive policy design. She was awarded a Fulbright grant and spent 2015/2016 as a Visiting Assistant in Research at the Yale Center for Cultural Sociology.

Since 2013, Vanda has worked for the NGO sector, both in the Czech Republic and abroad (Turkey, Northern Iraq), focusing mainly on migration issues and women’s rights. As of 2020, she has served as a chairwoman of the Gender Expert Chamber of the Czech Republic. Since 12/2023, she has been a Chair of the Committee on the Institutional Framework for Gender Equality, an advisory committee of the Government Council for Gender Equality.
