Overview 

Results from the survey highlight major disparities in the representation of gender, race, indigeneity, disability, and LGBTQ+ between research students (e.g., MSc and PhD students) and salaried researchers (e.g., Postdoctoral Scholars and Faculty/Staff). 

 

Compared to statistics from Canadian academia, geosciences has lower gender, racial, Indigenous, and LGBTQ+ representation for salaried researchers. 

 

Finally, against Canadian census data, it is clear that Indigenous and disability representation is low across the board (with the exception of Indigenous MSc students).
