This seminal report outlines trends, practices and experiences of the Global Research Council (GRC) participating organizations regarding gender-disaggregated data. It focuses on applications, review, and funding at the intersection of equality, diversity, and inclusion.
Three key findings are put forth in this report underscoring commitment by GRC-participating organizations; the newness of collecting gender-disaggregated data; and methodological differences in our practices:
1. GRC-participating organizations broadly recognize the importance of appropriate actions regarding gender in research and that they have a catalytic role to play.
2. Contextualized to the grant-making function of GRC-participating organizations, there are no specified standards adopted across the organizations regarding the collection and reporting of gender-disaggregated data.
3. The scope of data collected by GRC-participating organizations varies by region and by type of data collected.
