Welcome to the survey by Women in Sustainability [WINS] Network and Newcastle University

This survey is part of a project being conducted by Women In Sustainability Network in partnership with Newcastle University and funding from the Newcastle University Engagement and Place Fund

The next few years are critical for action for us to be successfully in tackling the climate, biodiversity, pollution and waste emergencies. And yet, we are still failing to see equal representation of women in the leadership of the changes so urgently required across the globe. When the world needs the creativity and talents from all, we continue to seek solutions from just 50%.

When COP26 [The UN Climate Change Conference 2021] convenes this Autumn, there will be a clear gender disparity and lack of representation in the leadership present.  Only 22 of the total global leaders are women, no women are in the top of the UK COP26 leadership team and only 20% of women led delegations at COP in 2019. 

We are running this survey now as we want to capture the voices of women working right across all three pillars of sustainability (economic, social and environmental), sharing and amplifying their thoughts, experiences and insights at such a critical time. 

The survey will take approx. 15-20 mins to complete and your responses are non attributable and confidential, we do not collect identifying information such as your name, email address or IP address without your consent.

Your participation in this research study is voluntary. If you decide to participate in this study, you may withdraw at any time. If you would like a chance to win a £50 voucher with My Green Pod (x3 vouchers to win) please enter your email address at the end of the survey.

The results of the study will be shared in a report to be widely disseminated, and discussed at an online or hybrid event convened by the Women in Sustainability Network and partners in early Autumn.  The results will also be used for scholarly purpose.

This research has been reviewed according to Newcastle University ethical reviews for research involving human subjects.
