Research Study – Women’s Experiences in the U.S. Military

By February 6, 2019 No Comments

My name is Sierra Dimberg and I am a doctoral candidate at Arizona State University and a U.S. Navy Health Professions Scholarship Program recipient. I am conducting this study for my dissertation under the direction of Dr. Lisa Spanierman.  We are interested in learning more about women’s experiences in the U.S. military across various branches. Specifically, we are interested in your experiences, attitudes, and feelings as a woman in a branch of the military. We value and appreciate your service to our country and hope that you will be willing to spend a few minutes to share your perspectives in this study.

We are contacting you to help us with the survey. The online survey should take no more than 20 minutes to complete.

Participants’ identities will not be known (survey is taken anonymously through Qualtrics with IPS tracking disabled) and findings cannot be linked to any particular demographic location.  Moreover, we will not be linking findings to any particular command—although we will ask for general information (e.g., rate/rank, MOS, years in service, branch of service, and deployment status) so we can see if differences in the quality of interactions differs across demographics.

This study has been approved by the ASU IRB (STUDY00009377). We truly appreciate your consideration of this request.

The survey is available now and will remain available until February 15, 2019.
