This article, based on conversations, aims to reflect the broad perspectives of policy makers, practitioners and academics about where we are and where we should be going in research, policy and practice related to gender science and technology. It thus aims to capture the essence of this new journal by introducing the key concerns of stakeholders from different dimensions in the Gender and SET environment. The idea for the article came from a desire to introduce the diversity of experience and knowledge of the editorial board, and ensure that not only academics but also practitioners and activists were interested and motivated to read and contribute to future issues. We also wanted to ensure that the journal reflects the interests and concerns of a global audience.
