NAMIC Employment Research

In 1999, NAMIC published its first comprehensive workforce study, A Look Toward Advancement: Multi-ethnic Employment in the Cable Industry--a baseline assessment of statistics and perceptions about the state of multi-ethnic diversity in the cable telecommunications industry.

WICT PAR Initiative

In 2011, with a generous grant from the Walter Kaitz Foundation, the re-vamped NAMIC AIM (Advancement Investment Measurement) merged with the WICT PAR (Pay equity, Advancement Opportunities, and Resources for Work/Life Integration) Initiative, to create a joint benchmarking survey gauging gender and ethnic diversity in the industry.

In 2013, powered by Mercer, leading global consultants on human capital issues, NAMIC and WICT once more joined forces to survey companies, again with support from the Walter Kaitz Foundation. For the first time, NAMIC and WICT would be able to present an analysis of the data taking into account geographical distinctions across the industry landscape. Even more significant, the 2013 joint survey captured information that enabled creation of industry-wide Internal Labor Market (ILM) maps that constitute “system-at-a-glance” descriptive summaries of key aspects of an organization’s workforce dynamics (e.g., hire rates, promotions, and exit rates). The ILM maps may be used as powerful workforce planning and D&I strategy-building tools.

The results of the 2013 joint survey were presented by NAMIC and WICT during a Town Hall Meeting on October 8, 2013 in New York City as part of Cable Diversity Week.
