CSWA: Survey on Workplace Climate


The AAS Committee on the Status of Women in Astronomy (CSWA) is conducting a survey on Workplace Climate. The CSWA wants to learn if  members of the astronomical community encounter negative language, or experience verbal or physical altercations on the basis of gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, ability status, or race and ethnicity. The survey is designed to request information during the respondent's current position and previous position (if the respondent has changed positions within the last five years). This information is requested in order to understand if astronomers and planetary scientists encounter varying workplace climates at different stages of their career.


Please help us in our pursuit to better understand how workplace climate impacts the members of the astronomical community. Go to https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/CSWA_Workplace_Climate_Survey to complete a confidential survey. We appreciate your input and welcome participation from all members of the astronomical and planetary scientist community over the age of 18.





For attendees of the 225th Meeting of the AAS in Seattle, Poster Session 242.04. An Update on the NASA Planetary Science Division Research and Analysis Program (Christina Richey; Exhibit Hall 4AB) includes an update on the CSWA harassment survey.  Christina will be at the poster on Tuesday during regular poster hours.
