inQlude was born out of a pressing need in the quantum information community to keep up with long-needed changes in society.
Our main objective is to highlight scientists in the quantum information community who, due to systematic and implicit biases, may slip through people’s minds in their day-to-day job. inQlude's first step aims to tackle gender diversity in quantum information science.
Do you have any questions?
We’ll try to answer them below.
Why browse the directory?
If you want to bring diversity to your professional activity and enrich your work with a variety of perspectives, you may browse here for a suitable fit.
If you want to actively fight against our current biases, but can’t think of gender-minority researchers to include in your team, browse here for those who have slipped through your busy mind.
You can filter scientists by area of research, seniority, experience, and special skills.
Why join the directory?
Showcase yourself: your work, your experiences, your skills. The community needs people like you as part of it.
Who can join the directory?
The database is intended for scientists working in various aspects of quantum information science: from quantum foundations to quantum hardware. We welcome only female scientists as well as scientists from gender-minority groups. Your activity can be carried out in academia, as well as in industry and policy.
How will the information be used?
The information pertaining to your scientific activity (including affiliation and academic qualification) will appear in your public profile, which is accessible to anyone who browses the database. The information on your gender will only be made public if you consent to the information being publicly displayed. When creating your profile, these two sections (public and private) will be clearly identifiable. When creating your profile, you will be given a GDPR consent form.
