Our Team's Diversity&Equality in 2021-2022

In 2018, at HappyPorch we thought a lot about where we are and where we would like to be in terms of Team diversity. When we started the BCorp certification process we started measuring our equality and diversity within the Team on a regular annual basis. 

We have definitely improved when compared to previous years and this is shown in our most recent completely anonymous Team survey "Equality&Diversity at HappyPorch". We received 11 out of possible 12 responses and the Team members who participated gave consent in reporting on all questions.

Here are the results:

Age category

Similar to previous years, we have most of the Team members in the middle brackets age category groups:

We improved in the gender diversity section when compared to the previous years:

Conditions

This category shows the Team members' various conditions such as visual or hearing impairments, physical disabilities, cognitive or learning disabilities and mental health conditions. There were no requirements about adjustments put in place in order to remove barriers to success:

Ethnicity

We are still largely a white group but we are improving at this category:

Most of the Team members are in the "No religion" and "Christian" category but we also have other religions. We will improve the options of possible responses in our future surveys:

Our current diversity is our current strength as a Team and our goal is to always continue improving.
