RECOMMENDATION S HARE ACTION 6

Support industry-wide DEI reporting standards and share anonymized data

When it comes to DEI metrics, tech companies must apply the same rigor of other business and product priorities. They must agree on a minimum viable product (MVP) for DEI data reporting. Holistic data should allow companies to track the experience of different demographic groups at different stages in the employee life cycle. While demographic diversity data helps us understand who is in the room, inclusion data helps companies understand different experiences of different groups in the same workforce—and whether the company culture makes all employees feel welcome, respected, and empowered to grow. The tech industry itself should initiate and align on industry-wide DEI data reporting, standardizing, and sharing standards. This will ensure the right data solves the right problems.
