Join the Royal Academy of Engineering and the Science Council to improve your understanding of and capability around collecting, analysing and reporting diversity data. The event will be hosted by the Institute of Physics. Representatives from the Royal Society, the Academy, the Institute of Physics, the Organisation for Professionals in Regulatory Affairs, and the Institute of Physics and Engineering in Medicine will share their experiences around diversity data collection with practical tips and advice on how to use data to effect change.
Book a buddy
Delegates representing organisations that are interested in using the Progression Framework are invited to book a one-to-one buddying session, between 10.00am and 10.30am, with representatives from professional engineering institutions and science bodies that have participated in the progression framework benchmarking exercise in the past and who can answer any questions around completing and submitting the framework.
Background to the Progression Framework
The workshop is part of the wider work carried by the Progression Framework Implementation Group (PFIG). It is part of a series of workshops to support science and engineering professional bodies that use the D&I Progression Framework. Previous events have included a workshop on D&I in grants, prizes and awards and a workshop on increasing D&I in education and training, course accreditation and examinations.
Managed by the Academy and Science Council, the PFIG has been established to help engineering and science professional bodies make progress against the D&I progression framework. The group brings together resources, case studies and blog posts and periodically organises workshops and other events to develop professional body capacity to develop good practice and make progress across all eight areas of the framework, including prizes, awards and grants, and education and training, accreditation and examinations.
This event is free of charge to attend but registration is required. For more information, please contact Monica Stancu, Diversity and Inclusion manager.
Venue and accessibility
It is very important to the Royal Academy of Engineering that our events are accessible to all. If you have any special accessibility requirements, please contact the Events team more than one week in advance of this event so that necessary arrangements can be made. Contact details: Events team
