Diversity and inclusion

Our latest members' diversity snapshot survey

This report is the third of a series of surveys of our members to help us understand who makes up our membership, their characteristics and some of the issues that they face.


The survey is a useful benchmark of how closely the physics community compares with the make-up of wider society. The full results of the survey are in the PDF below.

Please note that an update was made to page 19 of the report on 20 October 2020, to offer an additional clarification on the analysis regarding the caring responsibilities of the respondents to the survey.
