DISCOVER Cookbook Diverse & Inclusive Spaces and Conferences

Assessment of the event

✅ Survey participants after the event to establish whether your diversity and inclusion measures had an effect.

See whether there is any correlation between being part of a minority group and how welcoming the conference felt to the individual participants. You can consider specifically asking about inclusion/diversity on the survey.

Practical considerations

  • Have a plan in place to analyze the data shortly after the event – this can be time-consuming and you will need lots of helping hands to clean data
  • Make sure you review the survey outcomes after the meeting with your organizing committee
  • Communicate any findings to the next organizing committee if the conference/event is part of a series

Further Reading Be sure to check out the Event Registration section on “Demographic Info” before undertaking any survey that asks participants for information on their identity.
