Group Model Building

To stimulate diversity within teams, stakeholders within Schools have formulated a shared vision on the advancement of equality of women and people with diverse backgrounds using the Group Model Building method. In primary sessions, obstacles in processes related to inflow, flow through and outflow within a School are mapped.

Subsequently, with the help of stock-flow models, solutions are sought to prevent bias and promote equal career opportunities. In these sessions, the Dean, Director, Heads of Departments (HoD), HR advisors and academics take a prominent place. Due to this intensive collaboration, backing is immediately created among the stakeholders.
