2015 FFNT Survey report

The bi-annual FFNT survey 2015 was aimed to inform FFNT members and the broader UT community about the current situation of gender balance at the UT, career perspectives of female academics at the UT as well as the needs of female academics with regard to the FFNT events. We want to thank all colleagues who took their time to participate in the FFNT 2015 survey. We found the results interesting and beneficial to perform future FFNT strategy and activities.

The FFNT administered an online survey of female academics at the UT to receive feedback on the FFNT activities, to assess the possibilities for career progression of its members and to identify possible issues that FFNT can address in the future. The online survey was administered from 10 February to 2 March 2015. We received answers from 94 respondents (20% of total female academic staff at the UT). The FFNT survey of sub-population of UT academics: Female academics (N = 471).

The report is structured as follows. First, we introduce the distribution of respondents, then describe each of the topics covered in the survey and further answer the three topics: gender balance, career perspective and needs FFNT could address. We conclude by summing up the overall findings and formulating suggestions for improving UT as a gender balanced organization.
