Why are we asking for these data?

Theta Tau is committed to diversity, equity, and inclusion. As part of that commitment, we want to understand who our members are so that we can gauge how diverse we are.

What will Theta Tau do with these data?

Our target right now is for our chapters to be at least as diverse (in terms of gender and race identities) as the population of engineers that they draw from. These data will be used to inform chapters of how they compare. These data will also be used to study regional and national trends.

Theta Tau will not associate these data with individual member records; e.g., when a member is looked up in the database, it will not say “John Doe, black gay male.” These data will only be used and reviewed in the aggregate. These data will also never be broken down to the point where a casual observer would be able to identify individual members from the data (we will never share data about an individual pledge class, or a very small chapter.)

We will never use these data to target communications or programming advertisements to you.

Please carefully read and answer each question below honestly
