Welcome to the EqualEngineers "Masculinity in Engineering" Survey 2021

Thank you for participating in this survey. All answers are anonymous and confidential. The survey should take no more than 10 to 15 minutes to complete.

In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, EqualEngineers have developed a new and refreshed version of the 2018 survey to find out more about the effect that the pandemic has had on the engineering profession. Furthermore, we are interested in learning more about the impact that COVID has had on masculinity and male identity.
Engineering and technology in the UK is a predominately male profession - is the culture affected by the stereotype of what an engineer looks like, and how men are expected to behave? Do men feel included or excluded in the push to increase diversity? Could a more diverse profession benefit both women and men?
Suicide is the biggest killer of men under 50, with male construction workers 3.7 times more likely to take their own life. Are men able to be open about their mental health challenges, or is the stigmatisation too great?
Does this manifest itself as a macho culture in the workplace or on-site which prevents an inclusive culture?
This survey would like to know your views and opinions - the real ones, not the ones that you feel that you should express. Please give us your answers, not just the "right" answers. Please bear in mind that some questions in this survey are very personal - rest assured that your responses are entirely confidential.
