How it works

There are four main steps in how The Everyone Project works.

Step 1. A platform user uploads name, role and e-mail address of contributors to be invited.

Step 2. The platform then personally invites them to participate in a comprehensive, but quick demographic survey.

Step 3. Contributors complete the survey

Step 4. The Everyone Project platform generates de-identified reports for Subscribers

Why is this important?

Diversity and Inclusion

Strong evidence demonstrates that diverse and inclusive organisations and industries are more innovative, resilient and effective.

Diverse and inclusive organisations have a larger available talent pool. Different perspectives result in more ideas, they challenge the status quo and help you adapt for the future. Diverse organisations understand and connect with customers and each other.

Why measurement?

To understand the diversity of a population, it needs to be measured. Measurement allows you to understand where you are now, how you compare to others and where you can improve.

Once benchmarked you can track how effective your efforts are in the future.

Why our tool?

Our tool is simple but comprehensive.

Stakeholder Support: we have consulted extensively in the design of the survey ensuring it asks 'the right questions, the right way', as validated by stakeholders and independent experts. The platform is designed to integrate with organisations existing processes to minimise the effort needed to use it.

Industry & User Engagement: we seek to optimise response rates by building awareness, trust and engagement across the diversity of potential contributors and by making the survey quick and easy to complete on a mobile device (it only takes about 2 minutes for most people).

Privacy: the platform has applied ‘best practice’ privacy by design principles from conception and has opted in to be bound by the Australian Privacy Principles under the Privacy Act (Cth).

Security: data is encrypted and the platform is hosted on a cloud service with the highest level of certification provided by the Australian Signals Directorate, currently Microsoft’s Azure service is being used. The platform has detailed policies and processes for securing, controlling and recording access to data, including personal information, held by the organisation. These measures aim to provide the highest practical level of data security for the platform and information provided to it.

Independence: we are independent, we only provide anonymised aggregated reports to subscribers, not personal information.

Platform highlights

We’re currently developing the platform further so that it can be easily used by all organisations and industries.

What Companies Who Want More Diversity Can Learn From the BBC

A summary of the news article

Ros Atkins felt stuck. The career BBC journalist felt that he and many of his colleagues had “accepted that representing women equally in our journalism was a desirable goal, but also accepted that it wasn’t possible,” he said.

Many leaders and organizations struggle with the same challenge: a gap between their virtuous intentions to address gender inequality and knowing what to do in practice to deliver more diversity and inclusion. While most leaders say they want more gender equality, few know how to bring it about. So how, exactly, can we bridge this intention–action gap and make meaningful change on an issue as complex as gender equality?

Using an online tool for registration of screen productions and a voluntary demographic survey, The Everyone Project is a groundbreaking initiative aiming to capture the diversity of all cast and crew in TV and film in Australia – from extras through to on-screen leads; producers through to runners; and camera departments through to hair and make-up; working on productions ranging from reality TV through to documentaries and feature films.

Delivering through diversity

A summary of the news article

McKinsey's latest research reinforces the link between diversity and company
financial performance—and suggests how organizations can craft better
inclusion strategies for a competitive edge.

Awareness of the business case for inclusion and diversity is on the
rise. While social justice typically is the initial impetus behind these
efforts, companies have increasingly begun to regard inclusion and
diversity as a source of competitive advantage, and specifically as a
key enabler of growth. Yet progress on diversification initiatives has
been slow. And companies are still uncertain about how they can most
effectively use diversity and inclusion to support their growth and
value-creation goals.

Why we created The Everyone Project

A summary of the news article

We’re all different.

We have different ages, ethnicities, faiths, sexual orientations, gender identities, socio-economic backgrounds or disability. And we come from different places.

Our differences can sometimes be confusing and confronting. Sometimes we’re not sure how to make sense of each other. Sometimes we’re sceptical about each other’s motivations.

But we’re happiest, and most productive when we understand each other and get along together. Our diversity becomes a great asset.
