ForDiversity, Equity, and Inclusion

The Workforce Demographics Survey

Harness the power of data to advance diversity, equity, and inclusion in the workplace.

How It Works

This 7-minute secure and comprehensive survey collects demographic and workplace perception information anonymously - including race, ethnicity, age, gender identity, sexual orientation, and disability status to help provide your organization with the insights needed to make informed decisions.

Data Collection
The first step is to gather data from staff, board, volunteers, and independent contractors through administering our secure, anonymous survey.

Professional Analysis
Once the survey window has closed, the self-reported responses are made available exclusively to our research team for professional analysis and report building.

Survey Results
Once analysis is complete, our custom, comparative reports offering valuable insights into workforce composition and well-being are made available for download.

Actionable Insights
By illuminating strengths, challenges, and opportunities, findings from the report can be put to use for advancing diversity, equity, and inclusion in the workplace.

Conduct Your Study

The success of each study is dependent on the level of participation from staff, board, volunteers, and independent contractors who complete the survey, which is why we work with you to determine the best time of year for this to take place given your unique situation. We offer organization-specific studies as well as integrated options for partners seeking to survey a group of organizations within a community. 

Our services include:

  • An administration dashboard for participating organizations which provides a progress tracker and an interactive to-do list with easy-to-use templated communications
  • An administration dashboard for study partners which provides on-demand status reports, response rate progress at the community level and at the organization level, and easy-to-use templated communications
  • Webinar training and online tutorials for all participating organizations and study partners
  • Priority access to our Support Center throughout the duration of the study
  • Individual workforce reports with demographic profile details for each participating organization
