Diversity & Inclusion Survey 2020 - 2021
2020 - 2021 Diversity Survey
During the timeframe of December 2020 to January 2021, we conducted a survey to internally assess the overall nature of Europe Must Act. We received 68 responses to our questionnaire. However, we are aware that EMA has many more members.
The survey included questions about demographic information such as: age, gender, ethnicity, sexual orientation and religious affiliation. Our members trusted us with this sensitive information and we wish to thank them for that. From the beginning they consented to the publication of the aggregated results.
80% of respondents do not identify as being a migrant, asylum seeker, immigrant, or refugee of any kind
87% of respondents are cis-women/female
Almost 50% are between 18 to 24 years old
40% are between the ages of 24 to 34
55% are heterosexual, 25% bisexual and 12% are Queer
Only 10 respondents identify with an ethnic group
About 70% do not identify with any religion
80% of respondents do not identify as being a migrant asylum seeker, immigrant, or refugee of any kind
>90% of respondents are (at least) from a City chapter or from the Diversity & Inclusion Team.
These results gave us a glimpse into how we as an organisation need to become more diverse and further our inclusion of people with lived experience. Therefore, we would like to encourage asylum seekers and people with a refugee background to come and join our organization.
If you wish to become active in forming the future of Europe’s migration policies, please join our Cities Must Act campaign or join our team of volunteers who actively work on different projects.
