Description: One of the objectives of the Science Foundation Ireland Gender Strategy 2016-20202) is to ensure that the agency review process remains unbiased, as demonstrated by the annual gender-disaggregated analysis of the success rates of all funding programmes.
To that aim, in 2016, all SFI staff, including the Executive Committee and the Board of Management, received sector-specific, data-driven unconscious bias training by an external provider. Feedback and learnings from the session have been fed into process improvements within the organisation, such as expanded briefing to peer reviewers and a reconsideration of the information provided to review panels.
