The Institute of Physics, Royal Astronomical Society and Royal Society of Chemistry have been working together to create a network of support for members of the physical sciences community who identified as LGBT+, and their allies. They established a LGBT+ member-led steering group to oversee this work.
Many LGBT+ people do not find the physical sciences to be a comfortable working environment – and have thought about leaving. Despite progress, many LGBT+ physical scientists have experienced or observed exclusionary behaviour in the workplace. In partnership with the Institute of Physics and the Royal Astronomical Society, we have conducted a comprehensive survey to gather data from across the community – giving us new insights into the current workplace environment for LGBT+ physical scientists -- Royal Society of Chemistry website.
