The survey is brief and will be going to more than 50,000 outsourcing professionals around the world. The deadline to complete the survey is August 31, 2016.
*Please note this survey is for EVERYONE - it is not gender-specific.
“Women play a vital role in both society and the workforce, and we have reached a significant moment in a growing international movement toward women's equality and opportunity,” said Dana Corbett, IAOP Director, Research, Training & Certification. “We are proud to be joining this global movement in recognizing and valuing all women fairly, as their effective empowerment is a clear catalyst for progress.”
Findings from this survey will be presented in a powerful main session during OWS17, in February 2017. Participants receive a copy of the results as well as entry into a drawing for seats to OWS17, by submitting an e-mail request at the end of the survey.
This initiative does not end with the WEO survey; rather it begins to build the stage to make improvements and bring equality to the workplace in every corner of the world. Following this survey, IAOP and Avasant plan future programs and opportunities based on the results.
"The outsourcing industry has historically had an underrepresentation of women in executive and delivery positions,” said Kevin Parikh, Global CEO, Avasant. “At Avasant, we have adopted a hiring strategy to equalize this imbalance. We are thrilled to support IAOP’s WE initiative as a collaborative project partner, a board member and advocate for gender equality."
The survey is open to all of IAOP’s global members and affiliates, Avasant’s clients, and all outsourcing professionals across the field and around the world. Though this survey topic is focused specifically on women, everyone is encouraged to participate.
