RedThread Research (www.redthreadresearch), in partnership with Mercer, is conducting research on diversity and inclusion (D&I) technology. This survey is for both D&I technology vendors and corporate leaders focused on D&I. This research is phase two of our research effort. You can learn about phase one here: http://info.mercer.com/DandITech

RedThread is conducting all data collection and analysis. Your specific responses will only be shared with Mercer if you agree to this in the survey below. For the report, no individual responses will be shared, though we may place your organization into a category based on your responses. The research will be published in early 2019. As a thank you for participation, you will receive a copy of the report and an invitation to listen to a webcast announcing the results.

This survey closes on Wednesday, October 17 for D&I technology vendors and on Wednesday, October 31 for D&I and HR practitioners.

Please note, if you are a D&I technology vendor, you will need information on your customers and your D&I technology's business performance. If you would like a PDF of this survey to assist you with planning your responses or more information, please contact stacia@redthreadresearch.com.

Note: Diversity is defined as "the collective mixture of differences and similarities that includes for example, individual and organizational characteristics, values, beliefs, experiences, backgrounds, preferences, and behaviors." Inclusion is defined as: "the achievement of a work environment in which all individuals are treated fairly and respectfully, have equal access to opportunities and resources, and can contribute fully to the organization's success.” From: Society for Human Resource Management.
