BY INVITATION ONLY
About the session
Join the Royal Academy of Engineering and the Science Council to improve your understanding of and capability around collecting, analysing and reporting diversity data. Representatives from the Royal Academy of Engineering, the Institute of Physics, the Organisation for Professionals in Regulatory Affairs and others will share their experiences around diversity data collection with practical tips and advice on how to use data to effect change. This will be an interactive session.
Delegates will receive a recorded session with presentations from the speakers that they can watch in their own time before the live online session on 8 June, to help them prepare for the Q&A session.
Book a buddy
Additionally, delegates representing organisations that are interested in using the Progression Framework are invited to book a one-to-one buddying session with representatives from professional engineering institutions and science bodies that have participated in the progression framework benchmarking exercise in the past. Representatives will be able to 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.
Tickets are free of charge, however registration is required. All confirmed registrations will receive an email with the link to join the online event.
