How is your organization performing when it comes to gender diversity? According to an ongoing study conducted by LeanIn.Org and McKinsey & Company, organizations say they’re working hard to prioritize the advancement of women. But the study reveals a gap between these efforts and the actual representation of women at every level of the corporate pipeline.
That’s why SurveyMonkey and LeanIn.Org developed the Gender in the Workplace survey, designed to help companies assess gender inclusivity at work. Use this template to capture employee attitudes toward the opportunities they’re given to succeed. You can even compare your results against the Women in the Workplace study to see how you measure up against peers.
The Gender in the Workplace survey includes questions that cover a range of factors that contribute to efficacy and advancement in the workplace. Send employees this survey to ask them whether or not they’re included in important decisions at work. Do they feel that their organization is a meritocracy? Have senior level staff members actively assisted them in getting ahead in their career? And if they have children, are they sharing or solely responsible for childcare duties? When you know the answers to these questions, you can set goals around fostering employee engagement, advancement, and diversity across your organization.
