Subject: 2018 Global Survey of Mathematical, Computing, and Natural Scientists

 

This email is being sent to you on behalf of the Project Co-Leaders of the “Gender Gap in Science” project. For more details regarding this multidiscipline project, please see:

https://iupac.org/projects/project-details/?project_nr=2017-007-1-020 or visit the public website https://icsugendergapinscience.org

 

As of this current date, the responses from Chemists is under represented in the survey.  We are asking for more input from you or people in your organizations and countries. I hope you will take the time to participate.

 

You will find the survey at

https://statisticalresearchcenter.aip.org/cgi-bin/global18.pl

The survey is available in seven languages (English, French, Russian, Spanish, Arabic, Chinese, and Japanese). Simply choose your language on the first page of the survey. It takes about 10 minutes to fill out the survey. The deadline for answering the survey is on Nov 30, 2018.Currently, we only have 1454 replies from the world. We need more !!!

Don’t hesitate about it, please answer the survey now !

The survey is part of an interdisciplinary collaboration of eleven partners, supported by the International Council for Science (ICSU), which aims to better understand the problems mathematical, computing, and natural science academics and practitioners are facing around the world. The partners are:

1. International Mathematical Union (IMU)

2. International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry (IUPAC)

3. International Union for Pure and Applied Physics (IUPAP)

4. International Council for Industrial and Applied Mathematics (ICIAM)

5. International Astronomical Union (IAU)

6. United National Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO)

7. International Union of Biological Sciences (IUBS)

8. Gender in Science, Innovation, Technology and Engineering (GenderInSITE)

9. International Union of History and Philosophy of Science and Technology (IUHPST)

10. Organization for Women in Science for the Developing World (OWSD)

11. Association for Computing Machinery (ACM)

 

One of the specific tasks for the project is to collect data across the world to inform policy makers from all countries, especially developing countries, about reducing the gap between men and women in mathematical, computing, and natural sciences.

The data are being collected by the non-profit Statistical Research Center of the American Institute of Physics. Responses to this survey are voluntary, and your individual information will be held in strict confidence. We are aiming for thousands of respondents from every corner of the world!

We will also need your help to find more respondents (men and women), to answer this survey. Please forward this e-mail to send it to anyone (both men and women) who has studied or worked in mathematics, computing, natural sciences, or the history and philosophy of science and technology. You can find the cover letters in all seven languages of the survey here: https://icsugendergapinscience.org/2018-global-survey-of-mathematical-computing-and-natural-scientists/ It is only by hearing from as many people as possible that we can understand the worldwide situation for people in these fields.

Thank you for your help with this important effort.

Sincerely,

Marie-Francoise Roy (IMU) and Mei-Hung Chiu (IUPAC)

Coordinators of the Gender Gap in Science project 

 

Many thanks for your attention to this request,

Lynn
