The Royal Society of Chemistry (RSC) released a report titled “Breaking the barriers – Women’s retention and progression in the chemical sciences”.
This report relies on an open survey of roughly 1800 respondents including non-chemists and highlights issues women face in making a chemistry career in academia in the UK.
Although this is the main focus of the report, most of the addressed problems are common for women and men trying to stay in academia in general and not necessarily typical for the UK academics only.
IYCN supports equal opportunities for everyone establishing their own personal career despite their career choice.
Therefore, we want to encourage you to read this report and share with us any experiences you have faced or observed during your career trajectory.
