Guidelines for Including Gender Equity in Diversity Action Plans
The PCOSW Guidelines are intended to provide clarity to the colleges and administrative units in the ongoing development of their Diversity Action Plans. Gender equity ideas suggested in this PowerPoint will address the concerns detailed in the 2004 Parity for Women Report.
For further information about how gender related concerns can be addressed within departments, colleges and other administrative units, please contact a member of the President’s Commission on the Status of Women Strategic Planning Committee.
OREGON STATE ADVANCE was funded in the fall of 2014 as part of the National Science Foundation's ADVANCE program, which is aimed at increasing the participation and advancement of women in academic science and engineering careers, thereby developing a more diverse science and engineering workforce. Oregon State is the recipient of an ADVANCE Institutional Transformation (IT) award, which is intended to produce large-scale comprehensive change within our university. The primary goal of OREGON STATE ADVANCE is to serve as a catalyst for advancing the study and practice of equity, inclusion, and justice for women and others from historically underrepresented groups in the academy.
Oregon State University piloted and distributed the first Inclusivity Survey during April and May of 2015. Students, representatives from various academic departments, the graduate school, and several student affairs departments worked together to create a survey in an effort to inform OSU's understanding of inclusivity on campus. The content of this survey is intentionally nimble in an effort to inform existing or emerging concerns as they arise on campus. The survey takes place every other year and during the opposite year, focus groups are conducted in an effort to dig deeper to further understand the student experience as it relates to inclusion and belonging, and how that differs based on identity.
