  • Workplace Study

Our facilitator, Aparna Rae, is launching a series of surveys as part of a larger workplace study at the intersection of psychological well-being, adverse workplace impacts and diversity, equity, and inclusion. The goal is to include a large sample of entrepreneurs, small/mid-sized business owners, and startup founders - a group that is under-indexed in workplace studies. Data will be analyzed intersectionality, looking across race/ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, geography, disability, and more. 


What's in it for ISDI Members? Individuals and teams who take part in the study will get free profiles, and access to all surveys and methodology will be made open source at the end of the study period. We will also release de-identified data to any researcher through Tableau Public


The first survey is already live here - http://bit.ly/ITWSurvey
