Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Technology Platform Launches in Dallas

Technology, Diversity, Equity, Dallas

Kanarys, a first-of-its-kind technology platform that fosters collaboration between companies and employees on diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) in the workplace, launches to the public.

Kanarys gathers and analyzes cultural and demographic data, industry rankings and trends, and anonymous employee reviews on DEI – based on their own experiences and without the fear of retaliation – to inform companies’ efforts to build more inclusive workplaces and improve workplace culture. Through quantitative and qualitative data, companies can measure their own performance against DEI benchmarks and identify opportunities for improvement and growth through an easy-to-navigate client dashboard.

“Studies show that less than 30 percent of underrepresented professionals feel connected or heard in the workplace, costing companies as much as $144,000 per employee in attrition costs annually,” said Kanarys CEO Mandy Price. “Kanarys takes the emotion out of an often difficult subject for employers by providing real data on DEI, building and thereby empowering them to make changes that will benefit everyone.”

Co-founders Mandy PriceStar Carter, and Bennie King began development of the platform nearly 14 months ago,  launching the beta interface to corporate early adopters in February 2019, with $725k raised in a pre-seed round of funding. Kanarys has also established a research partnership on DEI with the University of Texas at Austin and a robust advisory board who have lent their expertise in diversity and business throughout the platform’s development.
