Session 2: How to write an equality impact assessment for Agile Sprints (online webinar)

Learn how equality impact assessments (EIAs) can enhance your interdisciplinary policy-led research by helping you integrate diversity and inclusion considerations in your research project.

This is workshop is open to: Oxford University researchers planning to develop an Agile Sprint; Oxford University researchers working on other UKRI-funded interdisciplinary research projects who need to conduct an EIA; research-related staff within the University supporting researchers with EIAs; previous Agile researchers interested in how an EIA might be relevant to their future research projects.

“An equality impact assessment (EIA) is an evidence-based approach designed to help organisations ensure that their policies, practices, events and decision-making processes are fair and do not present barriers to participation or disadvantage any protected groups from participation.”

EIAs offer an opportunity to integrate diversity and inclusion considerations throughout your research. While EIAs are not a legal requirement, they are increasingly recommended by funders as facilitation and evidence of Public Sector Equality Duty. EIAs were recently introduced in Agile, and this workshop will use a case study to demonstrate how to design and use an EIA in Sprints.

By the end of this workshop, you will understand:

Agile’s ambitions for diversity and inclusion in Sprint research Why EIAs matter to Sprint research How to conduct an effective EIA for an Agile Sprint and use it through the project to strengthen the research
