Optional: Workplace Experiences Survey

While representation data is the foundation of this program, inclusive cultures are critical to keeping women at your organization and in the technical field. That’s why we have expanded the program to include a Workplace Experiences Survey as part of the Premium Package. While this dimension is optional in 2018, the 15 minute survey will allow you to hear directly from your technical women and men about their day-to-day experiences and will provide insight into how your technology culture compares to other organizations.

Listen to the Workplace Experience Survey Webinar to learn more about how we are enhancing the program this year, including an expanded time frame for this dimension. Surveys can be deployed between now and the end of May, so contact us to get started.
