Reminder: Survey on STEMM Librarianship and Diversity Closes Sunday, June 30

(via Gavin Paul, New York University)

This survey is closing June 30.

If you are a STEMM librarian, you are invited to participate in a brief survey.

The Attitudes and Lived Experiences of STEMM Librarians (https://nyu.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_1zyWrNa4mYVcKwt)

In recent years, librarians have brought attention to diversityinclusion and belonging (DIB) issues within the profession.  It has also been reported that lack of diversity is most observable within the STEMM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics and Medicine) fields.  Our survey aims to report on the attitudes and lived experiences of STEMM librarians, especially STEMM Librarians of Color, as they relate to DIB concerns in the workplace.

The survey will take approximately 15 minutes to complete and will remain open through June 30th. Your responses will remain confidential. No risks are anticipated.

Upon completion of the survey, participants will have the option to enter a raffle for a $50 gift card.

We thank you for your participation in our survey.  We hope that our survey captures your voice and concerns and that it serves as a start of a conversation within STEMM librarianship.

If you have any questions regarding the survey, please contact one of the researchers listed below.

Thank you for your consideration!
