Respondents were asked open-ended questions on a series of statements surrounding the topics of age, gender equality, ethnicity, disability, LGBTQ+ and general diversity concerning their employer. Those statements included, “this company respects individuals and values their differences,” and “men and women have the same opportunities for advancement.”
