A comprehensive assessment provides deep, data-informed insight into your organization’s performance to guide decision-making and develop a roadmap to your diversity and inclusion goals. Our unique approach applies a rigorous analysis of both quantitative and qualitative inputs to pinpoint where and why barriers to diversity and inclusion exist; and opportunities to build more inclusive leadership and culture.
Current State Assessment Process
Quantitative analysis assesses trends over time. Examples include changes to workforce composition or associate perceptions of the organization.
We collect and analyze qualitative data to gain a deeper, more holistic understanding of enablers and barriers to diversity and inclusion.
We identify enablers, barriers, trends, and incongruence, tying each unique finding to a recommended intervention.
Our Strategy Lab design actively encourages leader participation, prioritization, and further identification of tactical initiatives and interventions that align D&I initiatives to current enterprise efforts.
Benefits of a Current State Assessment
Current State Assessments connect organizational realities to long-term goals, establishing a benchmark from which to measure change. A few of the benefits of a Current State Assessment include:
- allows an organization to articulate and measure culture change.
- pinpoints specific areas of an organization that may be underperforming in diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging.
- helps ensure future interventions are addressing real barriers to inclusion, maximizing the return on your D&I investments.
- creates a foundation that allows organizations to prioritize and target interventions in concert with strategic business goals, rather than spend resources aimed at generic outcomes.
