Account Admins, Survey Admins, Survey Creators
Because the Diversity and Inclusion Survey is run as a default unattributed survey, you will need to send out the invites to the Diversity and Inclusion Survey by a personal email address. Once you have access to an email list for all participants, here are some suggested email templates:
On [insert date], you will receive an invite from [person sending invite link] to take our first Diversity and Inclusion Survey. Unlike some of the engagement surveys you may have taken in the past, the Diversity and Inclusion Survey is unique in that it is centered around researched constructs of Inclusion, such as fairness, belonging, and voice. This survey also asks important, though sensitive, demographics like gender identity, race/ethnicity, and sexual orientation. It only takes about 5 minutes to complete.
The Diversity and Inclusion Survey is run on the Culture Amp platform, and was co-designed with Paradigm. This enables us to benchmark against our peers and dive deep into the topics that are well-researched and broadly tested. This survey is 100% secure, anonymous, and optional, though we strongly encourage you to participate. With a high participation rate, we can confidently take actions that focus on making life at [company name] more inclusive and equal for all.
Should you have any questions, please reach out and I would be happy to answer them. Again, this survey will reach your inbox on [insert date] - thank you!

In case you missed the earlier announcement, the Diversity and Inclusion Survey measures the degree to which our culture creates an inclusive environment where people of all backgrounds can thrive. We’ll be analyzing the results across a wide spectrum of demographics, such as gender, race/ethnicity, physical ability, sexual orientation, veteran status, socioeconomic status, etc.
This is a reminder to take the Diversity and Inclusion Survey that was announced a few days ago: [insert link].
If you already have taken the survey, you do not need to take the survey again. Normally, we would not send you a reminder if you had already completed a survey, but because this survey is truly anonymous, we aren't able to track who has or has not completed the survey.
In case you missed the earlier announcement, the Diversity and Inclusion Survey is intended to measure a company’s practices around fostering an inclusive environment where people of diverse backgrounds can thrive. It will help to ensure that we include the voices of people who might otherwise be marginalized, whether it be due to their gender, physical ability, sexual orientation, family status, or anything else.
