Of the 1,563 responses, 43% agree or strongly agree that their organization's staff represents the demographic makeup of the communities they represent. I expected there to be a lot more Disagrees and Strongly Disagrees based on recent research study results. Companion Animals for Reform & Equity (CARE) conducted a "Harvard Project Implicit Results" research study between September 29 and November 16, 2020. I'm attaching it to this post. According to the study's data from 1,725 participants, Animal Welfare's demographics are 84% White, 86% Non-Hispanic, and 84% Women.
After seeing the CARE study data, doesn't it seem unlikely that so many poll respondents (43%) actually work at an organization with staff that represents the demographics of their communities?Are we seeing our own implicit biases at play here?What do you think?@Jennifer Evans and @James Evans, I'd love to know your thoughts.
