ASTROMOVES: Astrophysics, Diversity, Mobility

ASTROMOVES is a qualitative study of astrophysicists and their career moves. There have been many quantitative studies of astrophysicists which provide some information on their mobility and how the mobility of men and women is different. However, it is only through interviewing astrophysicists that we can reveal the nuances of such differences. Thus, qualitative studies reveal the meanings behind the numbers. This talk is an overview of the ASTROMOVES project with research results. The project centres diversity across many identifying characteristics including gender, ethnicity and disability. There will be a documentary film on the project, thus film clips will be used to illustrate points.
