Dear ecosystem partners and friends,

I hope this email finds you well. As part of the Diversity Institute’s work through the 50 – 30 Challenge, which helps signatories to the 50 – 30 Challenge and other organizations achieve gender parity and increased diversity on their boards and/or senior management teams, we want to hear your feedback about your organization’s experience with the project.

We would greatly appreciate you taking the time to let us know about your experience as this will help us improve our work. This survey is anonymous and should take approximately 3 minutes to complete. The deadline for the survey has been extended to March 28, 2024.



If you have any questions, please let me know and I’ll be happy to discuss.

Many thanks and warm regards,

Chers partenaires, amis de l’écosystème,

J’espère que vous vous portez bien. Dans le cadre du travail du Diversity Institute pour le Défi 50-30, lequel aide les signataires du Défi 50-30 et d’autres organisations à atteindre la parité hommes-femmes et à accroître la diversité au sein de leurs conseils d’administration et de leurs équipes de haute direction, nous voulons avoir votre avis sur l’expérience de votre organisation dans ce projet.

Nous vous serions grandement reconnaissants si vous preniez le temps de nous faire part de votre expérience, cela nous aidera à améliorer notre travail. Ce sondage est anonyme et cela devrait vous prendre environ trois minutes pour y répondre. La date limite pour répondre au sondage est le 28 mars 2024.



Si vous avez des questions, n’hésitez pas à m’en faire part et je me ferai un plaisir d’y répondre.

Merci beaucoup et mes salutations les meilleures,
