LGBT+ physical sciences climate survey

This will be the first UK and Ireland survey of the working, teaching and studying climate for LGBT+ physicists, astronomers and chemists and those in related sciences.

The Institute of Physics (IOP), Royal Astronomical Society (RAS) and Royal Society of Chemistry (RSC) are managing the survey on behalf of the LGBT+ Physical Sciences Network. By taking part in this survey you will be helping us to collect evidence for what the working and studying climate is like for LGBT+ physical scientists in the UK and Ireland.

The survey is open to:

Members and non-members of professional organisations who identify as LGBT+ or allies and who may be working, teaching or studying in a physical sciences field. Respondents will need to be 16 years of age and above.

Responses are also welcomed from those that have left a career in the physical sciences or have not quite started because they felt excluded because of their gender identity or sexual orientation.

The survey will be open until 30 April 2018

The survey was launched on 1 March 2018 at an event that took place at the Institute of Physics in London. Speakers from the community shared their perspectives on the successes and challenges of creating a climate that enables everyone to be fully themselves in the workplace and place of study. It was also an opportunity to find out more about the survey and meet other members of the network.

Slides from the speakers can be seen below.
