For Umbrella, data confidence means two key things.
So we've designed Umbrella from the ground up to deliver on them.
We know that data about diversity, equity and inclusion can include some of the most personal data that there is. But understanding and analysing that data is vital to make our workplaces more diverse, equitable and inclusive. So we designed the Umbrella application from the ground up to be respectful and careful with the information our customers share with us.
We can work with a wide range of data, but at its core we are concerned with how people's treatment (primarily their pay) relates to who they are. Organisations can upload spreadsheets of data to the Umbrella application, with each row in the spreadsheet containing information about one person.
So how do we treat this information?
The aim is to provide you with insights into how your organisation treats its people, without endangering or sharing any information about individuals within the organisation.
We are big data nerds here at Umbrella. We're passionate about what data can communicate about an organisation - and believe that only data can provide the insights that we need to fix the biases in our workplaces. But we know that not everyone has the skills and confidence to crunch the numbers themself.
We designed the Umbrella application to do the hard work for you. Our aim is to do the hard work so that you can concentrate on what matters: understanding your team and your organisation, and making them more representative and inclusive.
So how do we do that?
