The 2022 benchmark will be the first of what will be an annual benchmark to provide information for business leaders, government officials, economic developers, and others to utilize as the state’s tech sector is spotlighted as a national tech hub.

The Benchmark Initiative will have participating tech and tech-enabled companies/organizations complete two Core Assessments provided and supported by project partner Inclusion Analytics. The Core Assessment includes an assessment focused on Policies + Practices which captures demographics and policies, and the other on People + Perspectives which seeks to understand the people and perceptions within those companies.
