How do y'all monitor for diversity on your Community forum?

How do y'all monitor for diversity on your Community forum? In our Community, we can get country location via the ISP, and everything else is essentially assumption based on name and profile photos, which has problems.

You might be able to do an analysis of first names to get an idea of gender, we did that once at Indie Hackers. Taking a sample of first names, then putting it through something (I'm not quite sure what), and it categorised it as a gender.

It's far from perfect, but worth a shot.
