This year the Las Vegas YMF conducted its first ever Diversity Survey. The goal of this survey is to administer it every fiscal year, and give the YMF board insight of the inclusivity of the activities. This will be the first data point, and as years go on we can see where we are improving, where the group needs to be more inclusive and what is staying consistent. This year we had 22 responses, which was much higher than expected! Results showed that we had a pretty good representation of different ethnicities, gender, sexual orientation, religion, fields of engineering, and even native Vegas members versus people who moved here. One the area that needs improvement is to reach out to members who did not graduate from UNLV. We are looking forward to see how we will continue to and diversify!
