Diversity in the Workplace

Club Employee Demographic Assessment

The Club Employee Demographic Assessment is a research survey presented with support from CMAA and The Club Foundation. This project will provide a baseline and snapshot of the demographics across the club industry. This three-year project will enable your club to benchmark your changing demographics over time.

Our industry has many opportunities to grow—attracting and retaining interested student members in the competitive hospitality landscape, having more women represented at the highest levels of leadership in clubs, and more. We must work to make it attractive to today’s workforce to choose to work in clubs.

According to the 2020 US Census, nearly four of 10 Americans identify with a race of ethnic group other than white. This is especially noteworthy for the younger portion of the population (16 & younger) identified as a racial or ethnic minority.[i] Diversity in the workplace means employing people of different ages, genders, ethnicities, sexual orientations, cultural backgrounds, and education levels. Diversity helps clubs attract a wider talent pool. With today’s labor challenges, clubs and hospitality businesses are struggling to recruit and retain talent.

Your club's participation and information are confidential. Please submit one response per club. Your club will gain insight into your team’s diversity and assist in formulating your own Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) strategy and tactics.

Your club's participation in this assessment will provide data to help CMAA build education and resources to help clubs recruit and retain diverse talent, making it attractive for everyone to choose to work in clubs. Already, DEI has been added to the Business Management Institute (BMI) curriculum and the slate of sessions at CMAA’s World Conference and Club Business Expo, and other nationally presented events.

Thank you in advance for your club's participation in this important initiative!
