Employer Research: Inclusivity in STEM

Research Survey: Employers' perspectives on inclusivity in STEM

Calling on STEM Employers!

Equate Scotland is conducting research into inclusivity in Scotland’s STEM sectors and are looking for employers to participate. Organisations often ask us how they can get involved in our mission to support gender equality in STEM and this is a fantastic opportunity to do so.

The underrepresentation of women and minorities in STEM remains a stubborn issue and we are hoping to identify best practices for inclusivity through this research and identify gaps where organisations would benefit from support to become more diverse and inclusive.

Participation in this research will enable your organisation to be part of the solution towards making the sector a more diverse and inclusive space where people and organisations can thrive.

The research consists of an anonymous survey which will take around 20 minutes to complete. Due to the nature of the questions within the survey it would be best if it was completed by a member of a senior leadership team, EDI lead, or HR lead.

As a thank you we will be offering respondents a place on a free lunch and learn session on ‘Unlocking the power of ED&I in your organisation’ as well as a free Equate CareerHub job board listing with our gendered language review service. Respondents will be able to access this after completing the survey through a linked form, so the survey data remains anonymous and non-identifiable.
