Diversity, equity, and inclusion impact
Syndio, a market leader in pay equity solutions, conducted ITHAKA’s first pay equity analysis in October 2021. The analysis confirmed that there is no systemic, statistically significant bias in pay by gender or race at ITHAKA.
Diversity and Equity Committee
We instituted a Diversity and Equity Committee that works to create and sustain an inclusive and equitable environment for staff, our partners, and everyone we interact with.
ITHAKA has formed affinity groups for staff to connect with those who share a similar identity and to provide a safe space to share their experiences. Our affinity groups currently include: POC, Black Employees, Women Managers, 40+, Women in Tech, LGBTQIA+, Persons with Disabilities, and Immigration.

Portico is establishing participation sponsorships to help residents of low- and middle-income countries attend the September 2023 iPres digital preservation conference hosted by the University of Illinois. These will ensure a more diverse global constituency at this important conference, and will encourage broader participation and greater representation in the digital preservation community.
In December 2022, Ithaka S+R shared its contribution to ITHAKA’s DEI work in the communities it serves by publishing three papers: Leading by Diversifying Collections, Art Museum Staff Demographic Report, The Black Trustees Alliance 2022 Art Museum Trustee Survey.
