Aware that you can’t figure out which way to go until you know where you are, CompTIA and Channel Futures teamed up to assess DE&I in the channel and tech industry. To do this, we collaborated on a quantitative study consisting of an online survey fielded in September 2021. The survey went to 510 IT businesses — channel firms, IT vendors, distributors, agents, telcos and IT consultants — in the U.S.
The survey included questions about channel firms’ general awareness of DE&I, what resources they had or needed, the challenges and benefits they had encountered in their DE&I efforts, what actions they were taking, how they would rate their success and more.
The results of the survey will be used to inform Channel Futures’ DE&I initiative. Various aspects will be examined in detail and used in determining where we can provide useful resources, education and expert advice.
You can hear more about the CompTIA/Channel Futures survey in the on-demand session “DE&I and the Channel: Are We Getting There?” available in the Channel Partners Conference & Expo mobile app beginning Nov. 1. And at the live event, be sure to check out “Using Mentoring and Advisory as a Tool to Attract Diverse Talent,” “Channel Partners Theater Session: Channel Futures DE&I” and “DE&I Meetup: Meet the DE&I 101 and Become an Agent of Change.”
We’re starting with a look at 10 important takeaways extracted from the survey results. They provide us with a base, a general overview of where we are. From there we can determine where we want to go and how we will get here.
Scroll through the gallery above to learn about some of the key findings from the CompTIA/Channel Futures DE&I survey.
