Would it shock you if you heard that only 22% of the data industry is made up of women?¹
Or that women only hold 12% of all executive positions in the industry?¹
Diversity and Inclusion is a hot topic across all spectrums of society, and it’s no different here in the data industry. We definitely know that diversity is not just about gender, we understand that diversity is SO much more than gender: representation of people from ethnic minorities, LGBTQ+ and other demographics in the data industry also receive a lot of criticism. This article is the result of lots of observations, conversations, trying to recruit diverse talent into Amplifi, and speaking to women within the industry.
Only in November last year, our Head of People & Culture, Dan Malins, wrote an article on Amplifi’s dedication to improving diversity and inclusion across all variants. In a survey at the time, 100% of the team agreed that everyone at Amplifi is treated fairly, regardless of race, gender, age, ethnic background, sexual orientation, or any other differences²… but that doesn’t mean that we’re finished working on D&I.
