Abstract Title: Qualitative Social Network Analysis of Women and LGBT+ professional physicists
Abstract Type: Contributed Poster Presentation
Abstract: Part of a successful career trajectory in physics is building and maintaining a professional network of peers, collaborators, and mentors that can support one's self in finding new opportunities and professional growth. This is known to be challenging for marginalized groups, such as women and lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) persons, and may be one of the reasons that these groups face challenges in physics. Therefore, there is a need to research on networks of women and LGBT physicists. In this qualitative Social Network Analysis (SNA) study, data is collected through in-depth semi-structured interviews by video conference with participants who are women and/or LGBT, hold a Ph.D. in physics and work in the academic, private, or government sectors. Participants were asked to draw sociograms that provide visual information about personal and professional connections relevant to them. Preliminary findings will be presented.
