All present and past users of Copernicus data are invited to participate, not only women! Participate now!
Copernicus user survey 2.0
Women are part of the Copernicus experience. They are not always visible but they are present in the production flow of the Copernicus / Earth Observation / Geoinformation (Copernicus /EO/GI) domains. This project aims to give them a voice and a face but also attracts girls in STEM careers.
This survey is addressed to all people working or having worked with Copernicus data or in the Copernicus domain of activities. The survey includes 7 sections (demographics, background and career, barriers, facilitators, education choices, gender stereotypes and final). It should take about 15 minutes to answer.
Women in Copernicus survey results 2020
The first “Women in Copernicus” survey in 2020 shed some light into the gender subject from the point of view of women active in Copernicus. Far from being representative of the whole ecosystem, the replies received from 460 women who participated in the survey launched in 2020 provide a first insight into a subject that should deserve further consideration in the future.
You can find all results in several posts on the Women in Copernicus website here, or read the great summary article published in the Copernicus Observer in January 2021 here.
