Share your views! Training gaps and needs for women in infectious disease modelling in the UK

Help shape a training and development programme for women in infectious disease modelling in the UK.
Image asking for participation in the survey

As part of a Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation funded project to support training and capacity building of (cis and Trans) women and non-binary people within the Centre for Mathematical Modelling of Infectious Diseases (CMMID) and the infectious disease modelling community more broadly across the UK, we would like to invite those working in this space to complete a 10-15 minute baseline survey to identify training and development needs. The survey will be live until midnight UK time on 20th April 2023

The survey will also ask about what you perceive to be the key barriers to women and non-binary people progressing and remaining within the infectious disease modelling field in UK academia. 

All individuals - of any gender identity - who have worked or are working within the field of infectious disease modelling in academia within the UK are invited to participate.

Take part in interviews and focus group discussions on the barriers to career progression for women and non-binary people working in this space

As a follow-up to this survey, we will be organising a series of semi-structured (45-60 minute, online or in-person) interviews and (60-90 minute, in-person) focus group discussions. Focus group discussions will be restricted to people who identify as cis or trans women or non-binary people in infectious disease modelling. We are looking to interview individuals of all gender identities (including cis men) as part of this process.
