BARRIERS WITHIN BARRIERS – MINORITIES WITHIN MINORITIES
The challenges for LGBTQ+ inclusion in the international STEM landscape through an intersectional lens
This research is investigating the barriers and enablers to inclusion in STEM across different national contexts, with a focus on how this may differ for different LGBTQ+ communities. It is seeking to understand the cumulative effects of the stereotypical STEM environment – dominated by white, heterosexual men – on those who are minoritised within the LGBTQ+ community: the LGBTQ+ scientists of colour working in white-dominated spaces; the LGBTQ+ women scientists of colour working in men-dominated disciplines and white-dominated spaces
- Do you work as a scientist or engineer in the UK, USA or Australia?
- Can you spare 20 minutes to complete a survey about your experience of working in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM)?
The Eleanor Glanville Institute invites you to take part in an online survey about your experience of working in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) in the UK, the USA and/or Australia.
The results of the study will be used to develop new strategies to make STEM workplaces more inclusive.
The survey includes questions about inclusion, belonging and discrimination at work. Your participation is voluntary, and responses are anonymous. You can skip any questions you do not wish to answer.
Take part in the survey (link below). You do not have to identify as LGBTQ+ to participate.
