FHS Transformation Survey

On the 1st of July 2021, the Faculty launched the first ever all-inclusive transformation survey. The aim of the survey was to establish a baseline measure of the issues that pervade in the faculty, and to provide a platform from which we engage the work of change through focused events, the pursuit of the employment equity goals of the University of Cape Town, the alteration of physical spaces and changes in pedagogy, research practices, and clinical service delivery. Ultimately, the intension of this survey is to move us towards an environment where all members of the faculty feel a sense of belonging, and that their humanity and diversity are respected and valued.

Informing and guiding the ongoing transformation work across the Faculty, the survey findings highlight that there is still much work to be done, particularly regarding discrimination, harassment, and violence in intersection with race and gender,  career development and mentorship, leadership training, and curriculum transformation.
