Free Anti-Racist

Organization Survey

Check in with your employees to understand their opinions of how your organization treats people, and improve diversity and inclusion.

We're launching a free anti-racist organization survey for any company who wants to survey its employees to better understand the workplace culture, minority support, and racial relations within the organization.

Ensure everyone feels welcome

 

Research strongly shows that the feeling of belonging in an organization is paramount to one's happiness at work. This is a hurdle that many organizations have to overcome in regards to race. Checking in to make sure that employees feel they can be themselves at work and that they relate to leadership is of the utmost importance.

Make people feel safe discussing race

 

The topic of race can be an uncomfortable one to have, but in some places, it may be perceived as downright inappropriate. Leadership needs to start these conversations; first, by checking in with minority employees individually, ensuring that they feel supported, and discussing ways to have larger conversations.

Provide equal access to career opportunities

 

People tend to immediately think of selection numbers in terms of inclusion and diversity. While selection is important, it is also vital to confirm that once hired, employees have fair and equal access to all opportunities such as trainings, mentors, promotions, and more.

Be clear about leadership commitment

 

Taking action has a stronger impact when employees see and hear what leadership is doing. Checking in to see employee sentiment around the actions the organization has taken is a good way to check that the actions are having the impact that you hope for.

Take actionable steps to survey employees

 

Administering an anti-racist survey is an important first step in your organization that will help you create new conversations, identify areas of strengths and challenges, and take meaningful action. We know this can be difficult, but we are here to help.
