Diversity Summary Reporting - All Group Members

Diversity Reporting can be accessed in Groups. 

To access a Group:

  1. Click on Directory in the Navigation Panel
  2. Select the Groups tab.
  3. Click anywhere on a Group to view the Group.


Diversity Reporting can be viewed in the Group Diversity section of the Group.

Diversity Reporting will only appear if a Group has two or more members with demographic information entered in their profiles. If a Group doesn't meet these requirements, Group Diversity will show that the reporting data is incomplete. 


When two or more group members have added profile demographic information, two charts will be available to all members of a group: Overall Diversity and Gender Diversity.


Overall Diversity

Overall Diversity will show an aggregate total of all demographic data. This is the percentage of the group that is Not Diverse and the percentage of the group that is Diverse.

Diverse is categorized as the members of the group who identify as female, an underrepresented minority*, or LBGTQ+.

*An “underrepresented minority” is an individual who self-identifies in one or more of the following groups: African American or Black, Hispanic or Latinx, Asian, American Indian or Alaska Native, Native Hawaiian or Pacific Islander or Two or More Races or Ethnicities.

Gender Diversity

Gender Diversity will show the aggregate diversity of gender. This is the percentage of Female, Male, and Non-Binary members of the group. 

Hovering over the charts will display the total number of members and the percentages for each data set. Clicking on the data sets below will remove or add the data sets from the charts.
