Active Survey

Woman in DNS
A new survey has been initiated on the topic of woman in the DNS. Results from this survey will be used to feed into a discussion on the same topic at the APTLD72 Meeting in Tbilisi, Georgia (September 14-15 2017). As some of the questions relate to human resources, we recommend that where appropriate, you forward the survey to relevant staff in your organization.
