A BIPOC Researcher Checklist

Given the increased need for BIPOC researchers, Insights in Color wanted to provide a way to empower prospects, candidates and job seekers with a list of factors to consider when navigating new job opportunities. 

This list is meant to:

1. Establish a foundational set of factors for BIPOC research and insights professionals to consider when seeking or transferring to a new role.

2. Provide a comprehensive way for researchers of color to examine how the outward facing statements made by a company may or may not match their actions or efforts especially when it comes to diversity and inclusion.

3. Arm BIPOC researchers with the right consideration tools to make better, well-informed judgement calls on the companies & departments seeking our unique talents and expertise.

It was created for:
