The Queer in STEM 2.0 survey closed December 25, 2016, with 3,884 responses. Many thanks to everyone who participated — we’ll update the project blog as we begin analyzing the data.
We’re asking people who work in science, technology, engineering or mathematics and who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, or queer or as straight to answer questions about their identities, education, and careers. We’re primarily interested in hearing from folks in the U.S. and Canada, which have relatively similar workplace cultures and education systems, but responses from other countries are also welcome.
This new survey builds on what we’ve learned from the first Queer in STEM, with focused, hypothesis-driven questions to understand the experiences of LGBTQ people working in STEM, and to help make STEM careers welcoming and accessible to people of all identities. In this new survey, we’re asking straight-identified STEM professionals to answer many of the same questions we ask their LGBTQ colleagues — this will allow us to directly compare their experiences for the first time. For more details, see our announcement of the new survey, and the project F.A.Q.
Please follow this link to take the survey. It should take about 15 to 20 minutes to complete.
