USITT launched the Entertainment Design and Technology Workforce Demographics Survey yesterday. And we need your help!

The survey will measure the demographics of the technical theatre workforce. Helping create a more equitable, diverse, and inclusive industry is the goal of many organizations efforts, not just USITT. Your input is critical as we collect this data. By completing the survey you are helping us establish a baseline from which USITT and others can measure progress and growth in our efforts over time. 

You will be asked questions about your gender identity, heritage (such as race, ethnicity, and nation of origin), age, disability status, sexual orientation, and career perception. For every survey question, you have the option to decline to state an answer.

Click here to take the survey. It should take you no more than five minutes to complete.

We would also appreciate if you would send the link to colleagues and friends in the industry and post the link to the survey on your social media and ask them to complete the survey as well.

The survey is being administered by SMU DataArts who will analyze the data and report back on aggregate findings. Only SMU DataArts will have access to individual responses. All responses are completely anonymous.

The survey will close on May 28, 2021, and you only need to respond to the survey once.

If you have any questions about this survey and how the data is being used, please visit the FAQ page. If you have questions for USITT, email us. For questions about the survey or DataArts, contact them directly, here.
