  • Data monitoring

    A primary responsibility for the diversity committee is the regular collection, analysis, and reporting of sex-disaggregated data. Such data are key elements in bringing gender issues to the fore and in measuring the success of programmes intended to improve the organization’s gender balance. The Advisory Panel recommends that the committee report yearly to the academy’s president, council, and membership, and that reports from the individual academies be aggregated and discussed at the IAP annual meeting. Within a few years time, the annual gender-issues reporting will become mainstream.
