  • We are asking applicants to self-identify so we can track who is applying to our co-chair positions. We value diversity in the TAO community; we understand diversity contributes to increased innovation and high performance and we want to be sure we are thoughtfully tracking who is serving on each Community, to help us to know whether our outreach is on target. Ultimately this will help us evaluate our diversity/inclusion practices. The following identifying questions are voluntary and will not impact your application.
