Privacy Policy

This is the bit where we put your mind at rest about the research data we are currently collecting as part of the #womeninlearning movement. Although our research is anonymous, we takes your privacy of your information extremely seriously. Here we explain the detail behind how we keep your data safe and secure.


Our current research is all anonymous and all questions are optional so we are not forcing you to give us any particular information if you do not wish to share it. We are a community-based initiative and the data we collect is not used directly for any commercial gain.


Ours is a legitimate interest, rooted in furthering the progress of women in and around careers in learning. Without more data in this important area, we are flying blind. So, the goal is to create greater insight into why women are not reaching more senior leadership roles. You can expect the data we collect to be used in the following ways:

•    Conducting research surveys for the #womeninlearning movement
•    Providing input and feedback into the community
•    Providing information and insight at events or in specially created resources and content
•    Servicing third party requests for insight and analysis into this important area

Any personal data will only be used in support of the intended purposes stated at the time at which it was collected, and subject to your preferences.


Any personal data collected will be processed by founding members of the #womeninlearning team for legitimate interest purposes as defined above.

Your data is processed purely to provide greater insights and understanding of overall trends and challenges. We never identify individuals or companies in our research without express permission.

We will retain your information for as long as we need to for the purpose and reason for processing.  As a research organisation we retain survey and research data indefinitely to enable us to monitor changes in trends etc.
