InChorus is a third-party platform to anonymously tag, measure, and resolve incidents of bias and harassment within an organisation. We’re not about surveys, we’re about individual support, and data, and action that leads to change. Because the more inclusive and diverse a workplace culture is, the happier it’s employees and more profitable the business will be.
This is needed because we continue to work in environments where nearly 9 in 10 women experience demeaning comments from male colleagues, Where more than half of women polled have experienced some form of sexual harassment. Where 1 in 4 BAME employees have experienced stereotyping and where 24% of LGBTQ employees faced public humiliation. However, this predominantly goes unreported. In these non-inclusive cultures, diverse talent leaves. Indeed, the Kapor Center for Social Impact has estimated the cost of this turnover in Tech companies in Silicon Valley alone to be $16bn.
InChorus exists to help companies change this. We believe that a systemic change is taking place. The brightest companies of the future will be those where an inclusive culture enables everyone to bring their full, and best, self to work. We’re helping companies shift towards that future, today.
