Diversity in IT Survey

Hi Everyone,

I am Richard Bazile moderator of the Diversity in IT listserv for Educause (www.educause.edu/cg/itdiversity).

We would appreciate if could help us out by filling out a VERY short survey on Diversity in IT. We are not seeking institutional information just some numbers on your IT departments size and diversity. The survey link is here http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/higheredITdiversity

Thank you in advance for taking the time to answer the questions. I will send back the results to the group after the holidays.

Have a great Holiday!

Richard,

Your survey is simple and only takes a bit of time to complete.  However, some were difficult to answer with just a yes and no answer.  I would have felt better about being able to explain some of the answers or about a better constructed survey on such a sensitive issue.

Diversity is an interesting question. I feel we concentrate too much on racial diversity and forget there are many other types of rich diverse experiences that people bring. For example: 1. Diverse cultural differences. My assistance is born and raised in Greece. Her perspective of the world is very different from some one like my that grew up in Asia. 2. Diversity of study: I have found that Music majors make very good computer people. On the other hand, people with soft sciences are great when it comes to reminding a team of the user's perspective. 3. Diversity of personality. At Point Loma, we are a Strengths school. We try to build our teams with a diverse Strengths profile. 4. Diversity of economic background - there is definitely a difference between the culture if the poor, middle class, and the rich. When we concentrate on one perspective and view everything through those lenses, we find answers to issues that are not complete. God bless, Sam Young Sent from my iPhone
