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 employ scientists or engineers?
- Do you work in equality, diversity and inclusion (EDI) in the UK or USA?
- Do you work in an organisation that supports scientists and engineers?
- Can you spare 20 minutes to complete a survey about your organisation’s approach to EDI and supporting LGBTQ+ staff in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM)?
The Eleanor Glanville Institute invites you to take part in an online survey research about your organisation’s approach to equality, diversity and inclusion and supporting LGBTQ+ staff in STEM in the UK and USA.
The results of the study will be used to develop new strategies aimed at increasing retention for all LGBTQ+ groups in STEM.
Your participation is voluntary, and organisations will not be identified in our reporting.
Take part in the survey (link below). You do not have to identify as LGBTQ+ to participate.
