Coral Reef Alliance Seeking Responses to LGBT Survey

From: Rick MacPherson
Subject: Seeking Help on Survey

I’m writing an analysis on Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgendered (LGBT) composition in the ocean sciences and am finding it difficult to quantify demographics in this regard. The NOGLSTP demographics breakdown of LGBT people in STEM fields seems to include ocean sciences in both physical and life sciences, though I would also expect some representation in engineering and math as well. Unfortunately, there is no deeper drill-down of the data.

I was hoping you might be able to reach out to your ocean science networks (list serves, Twitter, online bulletin boards, etc.) to see
if I can generate some feedback to this query from the LGBT ocean science community.

I’ve set-up an online forum to gather data.

A suggested succinct Tweet might be:

LGBT in any ocean STEM disciplines? Contribute to an anonymous/confidential survey: http://lgbtoceanstem.blogspot.com/

While I don’t expect to gather statistically significant results in this manner, I’ll settle for generalized trends derived from
respondents.

Any help is appreciated!

Cheers and thanks in advance,
Rick
