RSC Breaking the Barriers report

The RSC have published a report, ’Breaking the barriers’, which explores the barriers to women’s retention and progression in the chemical sciences and makes recommendations for action.

Talented women, interested in an academic career, are leaving the sector before reaching their full potential. Excellent female scientists who stay in academia are not progressing to senior grades in the same proportion as their male peers.

Through a major survey, interviews and focus groups, they have gathered data from across the community – giving new insights into the barriers facing women in the chemical sciences.
