Annual survey of scientists and technologists now open

Each year STA and Professionals Australia seek responses from scientists, technologists, engineers, and mathematicians to gauge the health of the science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) sector, from the perspective of those who work in it.

With the launch of this year’s annual employment survey, we are looking to collect important information on the conditions, fairness, equity and quality of support for STEM professionals.

Last year, the survey revealed that the gender pay gap is more pronounced in science than the broader Australian workforce, and more than two-thirds of scientists believe cost-cutting is imperilling the nation’s capacity to stay internationally competitive. STA and Professionals Australia have worked hard to make a positive change to address these issues. Your participation in this year’s survey will help us to continue to advocate for sector-wide improvements to workplace conditions.

Represent your field and discipline, and shape the future of our science sector – take the survey today.

Submissions close on June 26th. All entries in the survey are confidential, and your participation puts you in the draw to win one of two $500 JB HIFI gift cards.
