Participation is being sought from all professionals working in the space, spatial and surveying sectors across government, academia and business to take part in the Diversity Council Australia’s Inclusion@Work Index.
We don’t have an exact figure on workforce numbers for the space, spatial and surveying sectors, but we’ve estimated as many as 25,000 professionals working across Australia and New Zealand. We’re aiming to reach 40% to get the most representative snapshot possible of our current state. But we’ll need your help. So please get involved and share this far and wide with your networks.
The questionnaire will be open for four weeks from 17 August until 14 September 2021 and it takes a maximum of 15 minutes to complete.
We are specifically seeking responses from all individuals who work, study or participate in the space, spatial or surveying sector – that is, men and women, people from all cultural backgrounds, people without and with a disability. We need everyone in our industry to participate. It’s only from hearing from all segments that we can really understand our current state.
Respondents are being asked to select the sector they work in in order to benchmark and compare best practice between the business, government and academic sectors.
A public report will be developed that provides an evidence base for the industry to understand key trends and opportunities to promote inclusive workplaces. The report will be released towards the end of 2021.
Check out the website for frequently asked questions and a toolkit of campaign resources that will aid anyone wishing to get involved in promoting participation in the index either within their organisations or to their wider networks.
