Tax Executives Institute is conducting a short survey on diversity and inclusion in our members’ companies.  Enhancing diversity and inclusion is one of TEI’s goals for 2018-19, and feedback from our membership is very important in focusing our efforts. 

The aggregated data from this confidential survey will be used in a Diversity and Inclusion Forum to be held at TEI’s 2018 Annual Conference.  Join us on Tuesday, October 30, at 5:00 pm for a lively discussion, including the results of this survey and more. We appreciate your input!
