Complete Our Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Survey

April 08, 2021

Dear Open Signal Community Members,

As a continuing commitment to equity, social justice, and inclusion, Open Signal is pleased to partner with Construct the Present, an equity consulting firm that provides specialized services in leadership, equity, and inclusion. This partnership will set the tone and establish the groundwork for our ongoing equity plan. 

The first step in our partnership is an Equity Assessment. This assessment will be a data-driven review of:

  • Employee, leadership, and community engagement
  • Belonging and inclusion at work
  • Policy and procedural support for equity and diversity  

The assessment will provide Open Signal with research-based recommendations on how to remove barriers to diversity, equity, and inclusion (DE&I) for all stakeholders.  As vital members of the Open Signal community, your feedback will be critical to this research and the following opportunities are available for you to participate in shaping the culture of diversity, equity, and inclusion at Open Signal.

Survey: 

Fill out the survey at this link by April 28th, 2021.

Focus Group:

We invite you to participate in a focus group facilitated by Construct The Present to provide more interactive feedback. Fill out the availability survey if you want to participate in the focus group.

We look forward to engaging in this work with you. Construct the Present encourages anyone who has questions regarding the process to reach out via email.
