Hello! My name is Tony Colella, and I'm a Ph.D. candidate in the University of Arizona’s School of Geography & Development. I hope that EDSIN members'll be interested in my research: I'm seeking participants in a study to understand more about the experiences of LGBTQ+ people in the biosciences. I’m looking for folks who have attended (or are attending) colleges and universities across the United States to take at least one short survey.  If you wish to learn more, or to take any of the surveys, please click the links below.  I have four short surveys that you may want to take.

The first two surveys are looking for folks in the biosciences. 

Survey 1 (https://bit.ly/2Zbr2Ig) asks that you also identify as an LGBTQ+ person.  

Survey 2 (https://bit.ly/2YvI1rm) is open to anyone in bioscience, and includes a data collection tool called an Implicit Assumption Test, so please make sure that you take this one on a computer with a keyboard (it won’t work on a mobile browser).

Survey 3 (https://bit.ly/2MjHRgC) is open to anyone in any STEM (science, technology, engineering, or math) field, so long as they identify as LGBTQ+. Because I ask you to compare some of your experiences, you should also have taken at least one course in any bioscience or life science field.

Survey 4 (https://bit.ly/2MjFSbS) is open to anyone who has taken some college coursework, regardless of field or sexual orientation or gender identity. However, this also includes an Implicit Assumption Test, so please make sure that you take this one on a computer with a keyboard (it won’t work on a mobile browser).
