How It Works
You've Got This
Once you have evaluated the diversity of speakers at your past or planned events using the Speaker Equity Assessor, you might be wondering what to do next.
Creating an inclusive event entails more than booking a diverse slate of speakers. The outcome of the event and audience experience matter just as much in setting the stage…
The Power of Diverse Voices
Julie Hogan, Global Marketing Director at Facebook, says it best: “When audiences see themselves reflected in panels, they are more dialed into what the speakers have to say, the content resonates and has meaning, and they feel inspired to take a speaker’s words beyond the stage and implement them into their own lives and businesses.”
A study by McKinsey & Company also shows that diversity is directly correlated to increased financial performance in organizations. By showcasing inclusivity at events, you are not only increasing your companies financial performance, you’re also attracting the brightest talent to your organization.
Any organization can use the Speaker Equity Assessor. The tool has a variety of use cases. Events, panels, meetings, podcast conversations, the Grammy’s, your pilates class (maybe not that last one, but you get the point).
To get on your way with the Speaker Equity Assessor, all you need is the gender and racial breakdown of your speakers. You don’t need to know the specifics — the Speaker Equity Assessor only asks for the number of men, women, and non-binary people in your speaking program (both white and people of color). That’s it. It’s that easy!
Your data is stored on a secure server and is not publicly accessible. Access to the Speaker Equity Assessor™ is secured over a HTTPS protocol with a strong SSL Certificate. We do not ask for names, companies, titles, or any other identifying information. Any information about your speaking program is self-disclosed and optional. How much you wish to input into the tool is up to you.
The Speaker Equity Assessor is completely, totally, 100% free to use. The Female Quotient is dedicated to creating more diverse stages, and the SEA is our way of helping you through that first step of diagnosing your event.
