CEO/Senior Leader Survey

National benchmarking study on diversity and inclusion practices in workplaces
You are invited to take part in a national research study on diversity and inclusion in the workplace. This study is funded by a Social Science and Humanities Research Council of Canada (SSHRC) Grant (SSHRC 435-2016-1227) in order to better understand how Canadian organizations are responding to changing demographics in the workplace.  This project is led by a team of researchers from Dalhousie University, Carleton University, Memorial University, and the Canadian Centre for Diversity and Inclusion (CCDI).
Your Diversity Manager (i.e. HR Executive) has also been asked to complete a corresponding questionnaire on the firm’s employment policies and practices, values and leadership styles.  Both questionnaires are required in order for the results to be valid.  Therefore, your participation in the study is very important. Your answers will not be shared with your Diversity Manager or vice versa. 

A note about terminology:
  • Senior Leader refers to the highest leadership position occupied at your organization. This could include: Chief Administration Officer, Police Chief, President, Deputy Minister, Executive Director, CEO, etc.
  • Diversity Manager refers to the person(s) in your organization who leads the diversity and inclusion portfolio.
Your participation in this research is voluntary. You do not have to answer questions that you do not wish to, and you may stop the survey at any time (by closing your browser). We will not include any incomplete surveys in our analyses. If you do complete your survey and change your mind later, we will not be able to remove the information you provided because the surveys are completed anonymously.
You may be assured of complete confidentiality.  All responses will be aggregated and analyzed anonymously.  Only the research team will have access to the survey results. The findings generated from this project will be presented at academic conferences and a public report will be made available on the CCDI website.
The risks associated with this study are no greater than those you encounter in your everyday life.  If you have any questions you about this study, please contact the Principal Investigator, Dr. Ed Ng at (902) 494-8998, or email edng@Dal.Ca.  If you have any ethical concerns about your participation in this research, you may contact Research Ethics, Dalhousie University at (902) 494-1462, or email (and reference REB file # 2016-4011).

This survey will take 5-10 minutes to complete. We very much appreciate your participation. As a token of our appreciation, we would like to offer you a chance to win a one-year subscription to five journals from the Academy of Management (details provided at the end of this survey).
