TrustSphere’s Relationship Analytics Technology Recognized for Promoting D&I in New Research from RedThread
TrustSphere, a recognized market leader in Relationship Analytics and passive Organizational Network Analytics (ONA), shared details of its inclusion in RedThread’s research, “Helping Women Rise: How Networks and Technology Can Accelerate Women’s Advancement.”
The study, authored by Stacia Garr and Emily Sanders, considers the issue of gender representation in leadership and posits the following solution to the continued discrepancy: “Women are not gaining access to the information and opportunities they need from their professional networks in order to advance.” Pursuing this theory, the research highlights TrustSphere for its ability to promote inclusion and diversity within organizations.
Looking specifically at TrustSphere, Garr and Sanders explore the company’s ONA technology that works to uncover and understand the relationship networks of high-potential employees. By auditing such connections, TrustSphere found that while HiPos have extensive contacts, these are not always the relationships needed for additional promotion and leadership development.
Stacia Garr, co-founder and principal analyst of RedThread Research, shared, “To create this research, we conducted an extensive literature review and interviewed D&I, HR and technology vendor leaders. In doing so, we recognized that there remain stark differences between women and men’s networks and that this gap represents a significant opportunity for organizations to adjust their practices using ONA technology. TrustSphere is actively helping employers do this work and their customers have reported some impressive results.”

TrustSphere’s approach addresses several key findings discovered through the research, particularly that “most organizations today are not actively focusing on the role of women’s work networks in helping or hindering their advancement.” Last year, the company introduced its D&I MRI innovation, which leverages TrustSphere’s core technology to determine network homophily using communication metadata. The D&I MRI is able to detect gender differences in networks and relationships across an organization, providing meaningful inclusiveness measures and insights to drive sustainable behavioral change.
Manish Goel, founder and CEO of TrustSphere, commented, “In this research, RedThread turns a spotlight on how networks help shape one’s career trajectory. Through analyzing the connections that employees make and relationships that they build, it becomes possible to advance the organization’s ‘hidden stars’ and enhance inclusiveness overall. We’re proud to be included in this important body of work by RedThread Research.”
