About The Research.
The research, which included a survey of 1,500 professional women, 1,181 who were Black, Asian, Latina, Indigenous, Middle Eastern or multi-racial, along with 545 white women, and a series of moderated salon discussions, has been featured in Fortune, CNN Business, Fast Company and Harvard Kennedy School publications.
The first of its kind, the research was conducted by WOC, for WOC, and received support upon its release from Melinda French (formerly Gates), Lean In, and Fortune's Race Ahead.
The desire behind the research was to produce a credible, and unified look into what WOC have to offer to the fast-changing workplace, what they need to thrive, and how allies and companies can most effectively support and safeguard their well being and ability to contribute. The natural next step is to leverage the research to catalyze cross-disciplinary dialogue, clarify impact and forge tangible commitments to change.
