The First
Canada-Wide
Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion in Physics Survey

There has never been a comprehensive survey of the physics community in Canada.

Together with the Canadian Association of Physicists and the Laurier Centre for Women in Science (WinS), in November 2020 we organized the largest-ever survey of the Canadian physics community. The objective was to answer three main questions: who are the physicists in Canada, what do they do, and what are their experiences in the physics community?

 

We received over three-thousand responses, giving us the statistical power to investigate research questions that have never been studied before. Our team of physicists and social scientists with expertise in equity, diversity, and inclusion initiatives are working on a thorough analysis, and aim to publish our findings in an open-access, peer-reviewed journal by the end of the year.
