In order to develop and maintain an inclusive culture within the NAFEMS Community, we are currently reviewing our content, policies and gathering data to follow the Diversity and Inclusion Framework the Science Council and the Royal Academy of Engineering launched. The progression framework focuses on identifying diversity and inclusion practice in relation to eight functions common to professional bodies like ours. It gives us the opportunity to assess each of these functions against a four-level maturing model. The aim is to support discussion, initiation, planning and assessment of diversity and inclusion work.
By adopting the framework, we hope to demonstrate our commitment to diversity and inclusion for our members, the way we oversee our association and our influence with collaborators. Fostering a collaborative, supportive, and respectful environment that increases the participation and contribution of everyone in the NAFEMS community is one of our main missions.
Official guidelines on this topic are currently being produced and we will be publishing them as soon as they are satisfactory.
