i. Issues related to recruitment and retention of such individuals;

ii. Issues related to sustained negative work environments for such individuals;

iii. How these environments value diversity, equity, and inclusion; and

iv. Other significant barriers to success for such individuals, where success is indicated by factors including, but not limited to, promotions, raises, continued employment, and reasonable accommodations;

2. Where feasible and to the extent possible without revealing personally identifiable information, demographic data related to the status of women and gender non-binary, non-conforming, and intersex workers in nontraditional careers, including, but not limited to, the following information:

i. The total number of individuals working in nontraditional careers in the city and the number of women and gender non-binary, non-conforming, and intersex workers in nontraditional careers, for the past ten years, disaggregated by year, gender, sexuality, race, ethnicity, zip code, and age;

ii. The total number of individuals in management positions who identify as women or gender non-binary, non-conforming, and intersex workers in nontraditional careers, for the past ten years, disaggregated by year;

iv. Current actions being taken to promote the inclusion of women and gender non-binary, non-conforming, and intersex workers in nontraditional careers, in each industry;

3. An overview of city resources and information available to such individuals, and an overview of any actions and efforts underway to support such individuals in pursuing, obtaining, succeeding in, and staying in nontraditional careers; and

4. Recommendations for potential mechanisms, resources, and avenues to build upon existing resources, strengthen support, and to empower women and gender non-binary, non-conforming, and intersex workers to pursue and succeed in nontraditional careers, including, but not limited to, recommendations for policy and legislation.
