Survey: Parenthood and Career Progression in Science

Survey on the impact of parenthood and career progression in STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics)

We are leading an international research project aimed at understanding how parenthood affects the career advancement of people working in STEMM fields.

The survey closes on November 30th 2020.


This research study aims to 1) measure the impact of parenthood on the career progression of professionals and students in science, technology, engineering, mathematics and medicine (STEMM) and 2) to begin identifying the specific career obstacles faced by people with children around the world.


The data collected will be used for creating long-term solutions to advise the development of interventions and policies for increasing the retention of women in STEMM fields and ensuring that parents and people with caregiving responsibilities have equal opportunities for career advancement.

The survey results will also help raising awareness of the current challenges of combining work and family life in STEMM, particularly for women.
