STEM Diversity and Inclusion Toolkit Pilot Program

Are you a small STEM (science, technology, engineering and maths) organisation with less than 100 employees?

Do you want to improve your workplace diversity and create a more inclusive culture in your organisation?

The Australian Academy of Technology and Engineering (ATSE) are inviting a select number of small and medium STEM (science, technology, engineering and maths) businesses (100 employees or less) to join in their Diversity and Inclusion Toolkit Pilot Program (click here to view flyer).

The Diversity and Inclusion Toolkit (D&I Toolkit) contains advice for organisations to help improve the diversity and inclusion in their businesses across recruitment, retention and development of their workforce.

Evidence shows that having an inclusive culture and a diverse workforce improves creativity and resilience and creates happier and more productive teams. The D&I Toolkit aims to assist in creating a more inclusive workplace, as well as attract and retain diverse talent.

Organisations taking part in the Pilot Program will trial the D&I Toolkit over 6 months – adopting and implementing strategies that suit the specific needs of your business. Commitment will be at least 4 hours per month (but the sky is the limit).

At the end of the program, participants will be asked to evaluate the Toolkit and provide individualised feedback via a survey. This feedback will help with refining the Toolkit ahead of its official launch in 2022, when it will be a publicly available resource.

The Pilot Program is set to launch in early November 2021 and spaces are very limited.

If your organisation is interested in participating, register here by 23 October 2021.
