Inclusive Event Guidelines
2.5. After the event
Congratulations, you organised a great event! What’s next?
One thing you might consider is distributing an anonymous survey to your former delegates, with questions on your performance, suggestions for increasing accessibility for future events, and how you can improve your events in general. It is important to ensure total anonymity for this process, as this will ensure more accurate feedback for your improvement. This means that a simple email will be less effective – submissions will be tied to email addresses (often institutional) that are tied to specific individuals. This can easily be achieved via websites such as SurveyMonkey or Google Forms. If all has gone well, you should get feedback that supports your running of the event. But perhaps there were things that could have been better and you didn’t notice; it’s easy to miss barriers if they’re invisible to you. In this case, you can use the feedback to improve your future events, and even improve your departmental events across the board.
If you receive any suggestions that can build on any of our recommendations, please let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org. We’d love to share good practice with everyone!
