The demand for a diverse and inclusive workplace culture is growing, and companies must keep up with that momentum to continue to thrive in the market for top talent today.

RippleMatch, the recruitment automation platform changing how Gen Z finds work, has released new research on how diverse members of Gen Z are approaching the labor market this season — including which Diversity and Inclusion (D&I) efforts matter most to candidates today as they decide where to work.

RippleMatch helps employers build diverse, high-performing teams. With more than 2 million candidate profiles from more than 1,500 colleges — including more than 175 HBCUs — RippleMatch is uniquely positioned to collect data on what Gen Z values in the workplace.

Surveying more than 2,600 college juniors and seniors, these are the top themes that emerged from RippleMatch’s data:

Men are more optimistic than women about finding a good internship or job amidst economic uncertainty this fall

Gen Z candidates today are evaluating employers’ efforts to diversify the workforce when deciding whether to apply

Female candidates from underrepresented backgrounds are the most concerned about securing an internship or job with competitive compensation this year
