Although there is ample evidence of gender inequality in research, there has been limited effort to evaluate how researchers perceive gender inequality and how, in their opinion, resources are distributed among men and women in their workplaces.
Results from the 2018 SRUK Survey on Gender Equality in Research in Spain were presented the 23rd of September in Madrid at Fundación Cotec. This survey, which collected data from researchers in more than 60 institutions in Spain and which was designed based on previous surveys in the UK, has examined researchers’ experiences, expectations and perceptions of gender equality in Spanish institutions.

2017 SRUK Survey on Gender Equality in Research
During 2017, and within the ‘International Day of Women and Girls in Science’ we launched the ‘Women in Research Survey 2017’ with the hope to examine researchers’ experiences, expectations and perceptions of gender equality in their respective disciplines and in their institution, from the recruitment process through to leadership. We aimed to use this survey to gain invaluable data that will facilitate recognise the areas for future work. You can see the results of that survey here.
We have also published the first issue of ‘SRUK Women’s Project: A pathway towards gender equality in Research’ where we revisit the survey and the current situation of women across research and academia. You will also have the opportunity to meet five of our members in our series of personal and professional profiles.
