Call Summaries

Voices post: Building a More Equitable Future with Data: A conversation with some of the WE Survey’s Next Generation

The data from the second iteration of the Workplace Equity Survey benchmarking the state of diversity, inclusion, and equity (DEI) in the scholarly publishing industry is currently being analyzed. A future-facing instrument, the survey will pick up on emerging needs to help forge a more equitable path forward to the individuals and organizations in our industry. A full report on the results is scheduled for release early in 2024.

For the WE Survey to be sustainable, it needs to be a long-term industry commitment, measuring change over time and evolving with new voices and fresh perspectives.  This post introduces some of the survey’s next generation and delves into some of the detail of the analysis.
