The SMILE Audit Model
SMILE has developed a set of tools to allow HEIs (but also other organisations) to self-reflect regarding the way their institution is addressing and enabling diversity in general.
This set of tools include:
- A Preliminary Self-Assessment Tool
- The SMILE Audit Model
The SMILE Audit Model has been developed, tested in 20 different institutions, refined and finalised after consultation with regional engagers. These tools (the preliminary self-assessment tool but specially the Audit Model) are tools to help users to find a way to implement a Diversity Audit in practice in HEIs, identifying the obstacles, existing models, strategies for implementation, etc.
The SMILE Audit Model includes a users’ Guide, so institutions interested to go through the process find an easy way to organise their activity. The guide is full of recommendations and advice on how to organise and carry out a Diversity Audit.
