Poster 45: Matthew Mikota – Workplace Climate for LGBT+ Physicists: A Predictor of Outness

<< Return to the Main Page

Faculty mentor: Ramón Barthelemy

We analyzed the climate experiences of LGBT+ physicists through an online survey (N=324) collected by the committee on LGBT+ physicists for the American Physical Society. We found that being a student, exposure to exclusionary behavior, and both positive and negative workplace climate were significant predictors of outness to coworkers. The results indicate a positive workplace climate is a strong predictor of outness suggesting the importance of proactively inclusive physics communities.
