Diversity in Tech Dashboard

Diversity in Tech Dashboard
 
Measuring Diversity in Canada's Tech Sector

Benchmarking the representation of various demographic groups within Canada’s tech sector is an important initiative to help the sector track progress on increasing the representation of equity deserving groups over time.

The Diversity in Tech Dashboard provides a benchmark for Canada's tech sector to track its progress on increasing the representation and inclusion of equity-deserving groups within the sector over time. 
 
Data on the diversity of the current Canadian technology employee population is collected by TAP Network members through a confidential employee self-reporting process. This data is then reported to Mercer on a confidential basis through the TAP Network's Annual Salary Survey.
