Organization Landscape Analysis

Guidebooks May 26, 2023

In order to measure the success of any DEI initiative, it’s critical that you obtain baseline data. If you don’t have baseline data, then you have no way to indicate progress, and certainly no way to tie perceived progress to your initiative. So, before you begin any DEI program, you’ll want to collect data — a lot of it.

A comprehensive audit of a variety of components will help your organization assess its policies and procedures against DEI best practices. This guide is designed to help you organize your audit though a variety of categories and includes important questions to consider. The audit and assessment process can, at times, feel overwhelming. This guide serves as a support and tool.
