ASSET 2016 survey
The ASSET 2016 survey covered six aspects of academics’ working life:

  • perceptions of gender equality
  • recruitment
  • job and career
  • caring responsibilities, leave and career breaks
  • training and leadership
  • promotion and development

The latest iteration of the survey included:

  • an exploration of survey responses which paints a more detailed picture of the current state of gender equality in STEMM academia
  • an examination of how gender differences vary across academic disciplines and sub-populations (eg for respondents with or without caring responsibilities)
  • an intersectional approach describing how experiences of gender equality vary across other protected characteristics

The Royal Society, Royal Academy of Engineering, Royal Society of Biology and The Academy of Medical Sciences commissioned ECU to design, implement and publish the 2016 version of the ASSET survey.
