The Climate Survey Report offers a comprehensive overview of the findings from our survey on the studying and working environment, conducted spring 2023.
Helsinki GSE’s equality committee was established in 2019, with a broad mission of promoting equality in the community in all its forms. It is dedicated to ensuring that opportunities and resources are distributed fairly in the community, irrespective of gender, race, ethnicity, age, disability, sexual orientation, religion, or any other status of a member. The committee works diligently to foster an inclusive environment where everyone feels valued and respected.
The lack of diversity and inclusivity has been a pervasive issue in the field of economics, a challenge that also surfaced in 2018 when the American Economic Association conducted an extensive professional climate survey. There is a global endeavor in the field of economics to enhance equality and improve the overall atmosphere. A pivotal strategy in this global mission involves the collection of local data, which informs the development of tailored solutions to enhance conditions. In alignment with this approach, the equality committee decided to conduct a survey to assess and map the studying and working environment within the GSE community.
This GSE Climate Survey Report offers a comprehensive overview of the findings from our survey on the studying and working environment, conducted last spring. Within this report, we present the results and insights derived from the survey, as well as the discussions they have sparked, illuminating the perspectives and experiences of our community members with regard to our unique studying and working environment. This first report signifies a pivotal milestone in our joint commitment to drive positive change and elevate the overall experience of the GSE community.
