Diversity Reports 2.0: Making Diversity Transparent

August 4, 2020
Dani Dawkins

Over the past few weeks, companies, especially in the tech space, have started to share their internal diversity data, as well as their commitments and goals. This past week alone, Snap, Inc, which previously kept a pretty tight lid on their demographic data, has published their first-ever diversity report—indicating a shift in the industry toward making diversity within companies more transparent. 

At Drafted, we believe that openness and transparency are critical to intentional team building, and we are so excited to see companies making their diversity data and commitments more open. We want to help keep up the positive momentum, so we committed to revamping our site diversityreports.org to make it easier for orgs to make their data open.

Today we’re excited to share the new and improved diversityreports.org! Now it’s even easier to compare, analyze, and share diversity data with the goal of increasing transparency around diversity metrics.

A goal to make to increase visibility around diversity data

We built diversityreports.org to solve for three key user frustrations, namely that current diversity report offerings don’t provide access to sufficient data, and lack accountability, and context. 

Key Updates, include: 
  1. Increased access by making it easy to quickly share diversity data by filling out our diversity survey. No need to put together a 30-page formal report! 
  2. Broadened the types of data collected and covered on the site to include race, gender, sexual orientation, geography, disability status, and more. 
  3. Provided context by clearly defining each bucket of data. For example, you’ll be able to see if gender data reflects just US vs Global representation.
  4. Allowed orgs to provide context by creating a space for companies to share their DEI initiatives in addition to their data.
