I had sent this to a smaller section of the group but it deals with how the University of California asks the gender question and also includes sexual orientation.


We may be able to get a hold of their survey as a possible guideline.

That's the doc. Thanks for the input Alexis.

I was undecided on whether survey fatigue would set in with a long survey. I'm happy to hear other opinions on optimal survey length. With extra length I would also like to include questions on the importance of diversity to respondents and perhaps to even ask them rate the diversity related programs to date.

On the the second point, I was unaware of this term. Thanks for pointing it out. I'll go so some reading and get back to you.

* The survey omits many aspects of diversity, EG religion,
  ethnicity, disability. Maybe I'm only seeing a small piece of the
  final survey? IMO a single large survey will be more successful than
  many small ones.
* Q2 excludes asexuals. GSRM (gender, sexual or romantic minority) is a
  more inclusive term than LGBT, I suggest rewriting in those terms.
