Can we change the wording of the survey items or the order of the questions?

All of the questions are worded and ordered in a way to ensure robust, statistical validity. The Diversity and Inclusion Survey was developed to assess key metrics identified by scientific research. The individual survey items were developed by experts in diversity and inclusion, data analytics and social science from Pulsely, with input from industry leaders. The questions were chosen based on rigorous testing to ensure we are measuring what we intend (validation). Other questions were chosen based on leading research on the barriers to inclusion, belonging, and other DEI research topics.

If the wording or order of the questions were changed, the statistical validity of the constructs and percentiles would be compromised.
