A novel cross-sectional analysis of two large DEI and workplace culture datasets supports the hypothesis that inclusion, respect, bias, and sexual harassment are closely linked. We present a detailed analysis of recent workplace data methodically collected from 22,000 employees across different industries in 2019-2021. The data and analysis were provided by Emtrain, a Silicon Valley workplace technology company that engages, measures, and improves workplace culture, and the Center for WorkLife Law at the University of California - Hastings, a pioneer in workplace equity. Findings demonstrate that bias accounts for 41%, 53%, and 26% of the variation in reports of belonging, respect, and career prospects, respectively. We offer strategic recommendations for implementing an integrated, metrics-driven, legally relevant, and inclusive approach to building a culture that will attract, engage and retain top talent.
