Methodology

The Inclusion Index provides information to help organizations understand gaps in demographic representation, and is a strategic road map to drive internal change to find and implement DE&I solutions. This year, the number of participants increased by 24 percent, with 185 sharing their data. They were scored in three areas: best practices in recruitment, retention, and advancement of people from underrepresented groups—women, racial/ethnic minorities, people with disabilities, and lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (LGBTQ) people; creating an inclusive culture through leadership, accountability, communications and employee engagement; and workforce demographic data. We assess the demographic data for gender and race/ethnicity for management and more senior positions. That’s because diversity in representation is one of the best ways to assess the outcomes of DE&I initiatives.
