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 DEI 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 DEI initiatives.
