Workforce/Employee Diversity Data Sources

You can find information about the diversity of specific companies' employees and workforce in:

  • EEO Data - The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission collects data in the Employer Information Report EEO-1 on gender and racial diversity in the workplace in private industry, along with other reports covering unions, schools, and local/state governments.
    • The EEO-1 data covers the job roles held by sex and race/ethnicity and can be broken out by state and industry, but not company. As of September 2023, researchers can apply for access to company-level data at Federal Statistical Research Data Centers (FSRDC's).
    • Some companies will release their EEO-1 data/reports on their website. To find them, check the investor relations section of their website and press releases.
  • Refinitiv ESG Data - The Refinitiv ESG data will include a variety of variables related to a company's workforce diversity.
    • Refinitiv scours public sources for their data, so if the company has released information about their workforce diversity Refinitiv is likely to have picked it up.
    • Examples of relevant variables are: Social Disclosure Score (how much/well the company shares about its social policies/workforce), Policy Diversity and Opportunity (whether or not they have a policy about diversity), Gender Pay Gap Percentage, Ethnic Minorities Employees Percentage, etc.
  • Bloomberg – see Bloomberg access help - Contains a variety of ESG variables related to workforce diversity as part of the Bloomberg Gender-Equality Index Survey.
    • Examples of relevant variables are: Percent Women IT/Engineering, Minorities in Management Percentage, and the Gender Pay Gap Breakout.
