DEI Current State Assessment & Diagnostic
We understand that sometimes it’s difficult for organizations to know where to start when it comes to addressing diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI). It also may be that you are at a point where you have carried out several DEI activities and aren’t sure of your results and the next steps you need to ensure DEI is embedded within your culture and talent management all your functions and practices.
Inclusive Leaders Group’s Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion (DEI) Assessment measures how effectively your organization fosters diversity and inclusion to make certain that all types of people are included in a supportive work environment. Our process provides deep insight into several common values and practices that support diversity in organizations (e.g., fair and equal access to opportunities). While typical corporate DEI programs reference three primary categories (race, gender, and age), our tool provides the flexibility to define diversity in the manner most relevant to your organization. Our approach is also unique in that we provide you with benchmarked DEI and culture insights. This combination helps you understand exactly how your culture is impacting your ability to foster diversity, equity, and inclusion.
