Equate Scotland is currently conducting research to learn about the experiences of women in Scotland who are currently or who have previously worked or studied in STEM areas (science, technology, engineering, maths and the built environment fields):
We want to hear about those experiences that have made women in STEM fields feel excluded, treated differently or less favourably because of personal characteristics such as age, race, sex, religion, etc. Below you will find a link to our online survey. If you are a woman in STEM in Scotland, we want to hear from you. The survey is anonymous and it only takes a few minutes to complete.
Equate Scotland’s purpose is to create more inclusive STEM sectors for all women, to be successful in this we need to ensure we are representing and reflecting the views of women from a diverse set of backgrounds. Women can experience intersecting inequalities which can then cause them to have negative experiences in the workplace (or place they are studying) and be cause of them leaving the sector entirely. If we are to fully tackle gender inequality, we must also tackle other inequalities being faced by many women to create places of working and learning where all people can flourish and a Scotland which is innovative and productive.
In our twelve years of leading this work, we are proud of the diverse groups of women we have worked with, but we want to do even better. This survey will help ensure we are advocating and championing all women in our work.
