If you play a role in hiring for your organization, we value your input. The Millennium Alliance is partnering with UC Davis Graduate School of Management and Women in Data, a non-profit with a mission to increase diversity in data careers. A survey is being conducted in order to understand how companies view and approach hiring a diverse workforce, especially when it comes to data careers.
We asked Sadie St. Lawrence, Founder & CEO of Women in Data, what she hopes this survey will achieve, and she replied, “We know that most companies and hiring managers care about diversity yet still struggle to see progress. With our first annual industry survey we hope to use this information to learn from each other on what is working and what isn’t working. We appreciate you being an ally and sharing your experience with us.”
Hemant Bhargava from UC Davis Graduate School of Management elaborated, “A diverse workforce, and processes to achieve it, is vital for both fairness and business success. This survey will look across organizations to see what’s been tried, what’s working, and how we can help to achieve better diversity processes and results. Let’s measure, analyze, and improve!”
Your input is crucial to help build a data-centered understanding of employers’ views on diversity so that we may build a better way forward. The survey takes 5-10 minutes to complete, you can fill out the survey here!
