Barriers for disabled scientists


As part of work to address barriers to participation and success in STEM, the Royal Society has commissioned the Careers Research & Advisory Centre (CRAC) to undertake a qualitative research project to understand the low level of disclosure of disability amongst scientists in the academic workforce, why this occurs and how it might be addressed.

We would like to engage individuals (UK nationals and others) who work in a UK Higher education institution, from across a range of STEM disciplines. We encourage participation of scientists with a range of disabilities, conditions and learning difficulties. We will ensure that your responses will be anonymous and that you are not identifiable in any outcomes from the research. We will endeavour to make any reasonable adjustments to enable you to participate in this research.

If you are interested in participating in this research, please respond to this brief pre-interview screening questionnaire
