ICANN unveils gender diversity participation survey

The Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) has unveiled a survey to determine current perceptions of gender diversity in the ICANN community and to identify potential barriers to participation, reports ITRealms.

The purpose of this survey, ITRealms gathered is to inform community discussions on diversity, following calls for additional data on this topic.

ITRealms also reports that looking to clarify perceptions of diversity and equality, leadership, and inclusiveness, ICANN would like to understand the degree to which barriers such as familial responsibilities play a role.

ICANN, therefore, invite all community members to share their views, stressing that the survey takes about 10 minutes to complete.

In addition, ITRealms reports that the survey closes on 8 July, just as responses would be anonymous and would be used in accordance with ICANN's Privacy Policy.

Further, ITRealms reports that this survey is available in Arabic, Chinese, English, French, Portuguese, Russian, and Spanish. While the survey report will be shared with an analysis of gaps, perceptions, and potential next steps.

This data, ICANN said, would help identify ways to enhance gender diversity and support broad, inclusive participation.
