09/11/2020

A todas las socias y socios de la SMM:

Les invitamos a participar en la siguiente encuesta international elaborada por Mothers in Science y dirigida a padres científicos, en especial madres, quienes han enfrentado obstáculos para realizar sus actividades académicas. Aunque también la participación de científicos sin hijos es importante.

Es importante que la comunidad matemática participe en este tipo de encuestas para encontrar soluciones colectivas que promuevan la igualdad y la inclusión.

Atentamente, 
Comisión de Equidad y Género

The non-profit organization Mothers in Science is conducting an international survey to address the systemic career obstacles and inequalities faced by parents in STEM (pre-pandemic), which have been recently magnified by the coronavirus pandemic- especially for mothers. The data from this survey will help us to raise awareness and create long-lasting solutions for increasing the retention of women in STEM careers and for promoting workplace equality and inclusion. 

The survey is directed to mothers and fathers, but participants without children are also needed.

This survey is being conducted in collaboration with Washington University in St Louis, 500 Women Scientists, INWES, Parent in Science and Femmes & Sciences.

If you have a moment, please consider taking the survey, which is available here: http://www.mothersinscience.com/survey

We are also posting the information as a News on CWM website.
