Code of Conduct
Use of Diversity Atlas data
Diversity Atlas is supplied to organisations to gather data to help them better understand the nature and distribution of diversity of their staff, membership, or stakeholders. You can use the data to, for example:
- Create team-building activities and build a respectful, inclusive organisational culture
- Promote and celebrate the diversity of your workforce or community base
- Develop personnel management and workforce planning policies aimed at ensuring a balanced distribution of diversity within and between different organisational units
All actions or policies informed by the data generated by Diversity Atlas should be designed and implemented in strict accordance with your jurisdiction’s anti-discrimination laws and regulations, be they in regards to gender, race or ethnicity, nationality, migration status, sexual orientation, or ability.
Members of your organisation tasked with administering a Diversity Atlas survey should maintain precautions to keep the results of a survey safe at all times, primarily by safeguarding against unauthorised access to the Diversity Atlas admin dashboard, which presents the results of your organisation’s survey.
To this end, we recommend the use of a strong password controlling access to your organisation’s Diversity Atlas account. Do not write your password down anywhere and keep the number of people with access to the account to a minimum.
Organisations must make it clear that employee or member participation in a Diversity Atlas survey is voluntary, and not mandatory. This should be stated in all email communications about the survey. Please note that making employees’ participation in a Diversity Atlas survey mandatory may be a violation of privacy laws in some countries.
