ICANN Launches Age Diversity and Participation Survey
LOS ANGELES – 21 March 2019 – The Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) is launching a survey to determine current perceptions of age diversity in the ICANN community. It is also aimed at identifying potential barriers to participation.
The Age Diversity and Participation Survey will help to clarify perceptions of diversity, equality, leadership, and inclusiveness, which in turn will help inform community discussions.
All community members are encouraged to share their views. Please take the survey here: https://go.icann.org/agesurvey.
The Age Diversity and Participation Survey was created in response to calls from the community for additional data on these topics. It is a follow-up to the pilot survey on gender diversity in 2017. The ICANN organization will share a report with an analysis of gaps, perceptions, and potential next steps. This data will help ICANN identify ways to improve age diversity and support broad, inclusive participation.

ICANN's mission is to help ensure a stable, secure, and unified global Internet. To reach another person on the Internet, you need to type an address – a name or a number – into your computer or other device. That address must be unique so computers know where to find each other. ICANN helps coordinate and support these unique identifiers across the world. ICANN was formed in 1998 as a not-for-profit public-benefit corporation with a community of participants from all over the world.
