LOS ANGELES – The Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) announced in a press release that it is launching a survey to determine current perceptions of age diversity in the ICANN community. It is also aimed at identifying potential barriers to participation.

The Age Diversity and Participation Survey will help clarify perceptions of diversity, equality, leadership, and inclusiveness, which in turn will help inform community discussions.

All community members are encouraged to share their views. 

The survey closes on April 19. Responses will be anonymous and will be used in accordance with ICANN's Privacy Policy. The survey is available in Arabic, Chinese, English, French, Portuguese, Russian, and Spanish.

The Age Diversity and Participation Survey was created in response to calls from the community for additional data on these topics. It is a follow-up to the pilot survey on gender diversity in 2017. The ICANN organization will share a report with an analysis of gaps, perceptions, and potential next steps. This data will help ICANN identify ways to improve age diversity and support broad, inclusive participation.
