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.
