Our Anti-Racism Work
COMBATING DIGITAL BIAS
In collaboration with Construct the Present, Avenue launched an anti-racism initiative aimed at combating digital bias. Together, we gathered information via this survey to identify pain points experienced by businesses owned by members of marginalized groups. You can read more about the project in this article on A JEDI Approach to Redistributing Power in the Digital Landscape.
A summary of the survey questions we asked and the insights we garnered are below. You can also download the full infographic and survey results below.
