Calling on STEM Employers!

Posted: 3rd October 2023

Equate Scotland are conducting research into inclusivity in Scotland’s STEM sectors and are looking for employers to participate. Organisations often ask us how they can get involved in our mission to support gender equality in STEM and this is a fantastic opportunity to do so.

Underrepresentation of women and minorities in STEM remains a stubborn issue and we are hoping to identify best practice for inclusivity through this research and identify gaps where organisations would benefit from support to become more diverse and inclusive.

Participation in this research will enable your organisation to be part of the solution towards making the sector a more diverse and inclusive space where people and organisations can thrive.

The research consists of an anonymous survey which will take around 20 minutes to complete. Due to the nature of the questions within the survey it would be best if it was completed by a member of a senior leadership team, EDI lead, or HR lead.

The Employer Survey will be open until the 31st of October! 

Your participation will help us to develop our advocacy and training programmes that benefit the women and non-binary people in your organisation, and across Scotland, and will help us understand how we can continue to support employers. As an acknowledgement of your contribution, we can offer you one free CareerHub job listing (worth £200) and exclusive access to an online lunch and learn by Equate Scotland on ‘Unlocking the power of ED&I in your organisation’ to be held in November 2023.
