The Engineering Inclusion Healthcheck
The Healthcheck Tool structures conversations and introduces things that could be done, shares knowledge across departments and courses, and helps prioritise action.
“What gets measured gets managed” is often attributed to Peter Drucker. A short Google and it seems it wasn’t Drucker. While it rings true, as people strive to meet their performance targets, they can lose sight of what is ethical or what really needs doing. The “No data, no problem” mantra adopted by the European Commission Women in Science Team in 1998 highlighted the many challenges women face in STEM careers and catalyzed a shift in data collection and management. And the Athena project that morphed into the Athena SWAN awards, in 1999, focused on women’s academic careers, highlighting hurdles. Let your data inform what you know needs doing.
The Katalytik Healthcheck Tool prioritises your planning and checks on progress.
If your challenges include your student attainment gap, bullying, racism, or misogyny in group working, what strategies have you developed and what are the barriers to dealing with them?
You may have rolled out unconscious bias training, but found that some staff came through more convinced they were doing the right thing.
The Katalytik Toolkit helps you (and your colleagues) have conversations around different aspects of diversity, equity, and inclusion with staff and students. Join our community of practice – the Engineering Inclusion Forum
Explore how far your diversity, equity, and inclusion efforts have permeated through your faculty or department.
The Healthcheck is based on the Four Pillars framework from the Designing Inclusive Engineering Education report* (2018): Culture, Content, Delivery, and Practice.
