Deadline Tomorrow—Participate in the 2023 Gender Equity Benchmarking Survey

The staffing and recruiting industry can play a unique role in promoting and advancing gender equity in business, particularly in positions of leadership. The 2023 Gender Equity Benchmark Survey by the Women Business Collaborative—presented with support from ASA, the National Association of Personnel Services, Staffing Industry Analysts, and TechServe Alliance—will provide a new benchmark to evaluate progress made toward gender equity in the staffing and executive search industry.

This year’s survey has been modified to simplify some of the responses while allowing new ways to analyze the results. Help advance women business leaders and achieve gender, diversity, and pay parity in the workplace by participating in the survey. Responses are due Aug. 25.
