Journal Articles - CWSE University Climate Surveys

Former Prairies Chair, Dr. Annemieke Farenhorst and her team, lead the first University Climate Survey amongst faculty in natural science and engineering fields at select universities in their region in 2018. Atlantic Chair Dr. Franz-Odendaal tailored the survey for her region and ran it in 2018 as well. These surveys aim to understand the perceptions and experiences faculty members have of their workplace. The survey has also been run in the Ontario region by former Chair Dr. Catherine Mavriplis and the results are being analyzed. Below are the published articles based on these surveys:

Enacting workplace culture change for excellence in research: a gender lens

Enacting workplace culture change for excellence in research: a gender lens

Abstract: Science and engineering research excellence can be maximized if the selection of researchers is made
from 100% of the pool of human talent. This requires policies and approaches that encourage broad
sections of society, including women and other underrepresented groups, to participate in research.
Institutional policies, interpersonal interactions, and individuals’ attitudes are drivers of workplace
culture. Here, some new evidence-based and systematic approaches with a focus on culture are
proposed to foster women’s inclusion and success in science and engineering.
