Equality, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) Monitoring

The Experimental Psychology Society (EPS) is committed to promoting equality, diversity, and inclusion (EDI) amongst our membership and award recipients. To help us monitor our progress, we ask for your cooperation in answering the questions below. These questions were chosen based on best practices for EDI monitoring. This form is voluntary. However, the more information you can give us, the better we will be able to determine whether we are meeting our EDI standards.

Your answers will be held confidentially by the EPS Administrator and separately from any application you make for membership, funding, or prizes. They will be used for monitoring purposes only and will not be accessible to the committee during any selection process. The EPS Administrator, who is not involved in committee decision-making or selection processes, will be able to temporarily link your EDI Monitoring Form responses to your identity when you make an application for funding/prizes in order to prepare anonymised data about the characteristics of our membership and award recipients. The committee’s EDI Representative will then use those anonymised data to prepare progress reports for the committee. These processes will be monitored and reviewed annually by the committee’s Data Protection Officer.

These data will not be shared with other organisations beyond the EPS using services and IT provision of its host organisation (currently University of Kent). We will hold these data indefinitely for ongoing monitoring purposes unless you ask us to delete them. If you need to update your data, wish for us to delete it, or have questions about this form, please contact the EPS administrator: expsychsoc@kent.ac.uk.
