Research Brief

Perpetuity Research is an independent research company. In this project, undertaken on behalf of ICTS, we are seeking to understand women’s experiences of work in the security sector. We are specifically seeking the views of women who carry out security tasks themselves or manage staff that carry out security tasks. In addition this research focuses on physical security.
This area has remained largely unexamined. We are seeking to identify: what types of barriers, if any, exist for women to enter security work and then progress in it; whether strategies to overcome barriers are being adopted and views of them; and how the representation of women in the sector can be increased.
This survey should take approximately 10 minutes to complete. The deadline for responses is Friday 10th May.
We do not ask for your name or the company you work for, and no identifying factors will be presented in the research findings. All information will be used only for the purposes of this piece of research. At the end of the survey we will provide you with an opportunity to receive a free copy of the findings (available once the report is published).

Thank you for your input.
