Diversity Alliance founder Gabrielle Austen Browne is calling on event profs to support her extensive data project to better understand and improve DE&I in the events industry.
The project, “Driving Success through Diversity: Unveiling the Data-Backed Roadmap to High Employee Engagement and Retention”, aims to offer organisations a roadmap to success, innovation, and growth.
It features a survey, supported by in-depth interviews with a broad cross-section of people working across the industry, which will extract valuable insights and trends relating to DE&I in the industry across the UK. The survey closes on 9 February 2024.
This data project is on a mission to address these vital areas:
Commitment – Improving organisations commitment to workplace change.
Diversity – Ensuring equal opportunities for all diversities.
Inclusion – Cultivating inclusion in the workplace through a culture of belonging.
Equity – Eliminating barriers and biases for the event industry to be more equitable.
Diversity Alliance is working with Nyomi Rose, a data management and social media consultant on the project.
Austen Browne said: “For me data has always been the missing piece of the puzzle when trying to highlight the value and importance of initiating DEI strategies and policies in the workplace So, access to data on the impact of diversity and inclusion initiatives is going to be a game-changer for companies, agencies, venues and the industry as a whole. I envisage that organisations embracing these insights, will gain a competitive edge in the industry.”
