Attracting and retaining talent is now more difficult than ever. Even harder: building and sustaining a diverse, equitable, and inclusive organization where every individual thrives and does their best work. But beyond knowing it’s the right thing to do, data shows that companies that value diversity and inclusion outperform other companies by as much as 400%. Yet many organizations struggle to identify DEI gaps, get buy-in, and make ongoing progress. 

Have you ever struggled to measure progress in DEI or provide transparency around your DEI strategy? We’re excited to announce the launch of our new Mathison Equity Index to help organizations build their action plan, mobilize their employees, and measure ongoing impact — starting TODAY.

Read on to get a closer look at the new Mathison Equity Index and get a sneak peek at the fantastic new capabilities. 

What is The Mathison Equity Index?

The Mathison Equity Index, created based on over three years of comprehensive research alongside hundreds of DEI experts and HR professionals, enables you to accelerate your diversity, equity, and inclusion journey with strategy, metrics, guidance, and tools to make immediate and ongoing progress. 

The Mathison Equity Index Tool mobilizes your DEI efforts with: 

  • An in-depth DEI assessment to help you uncover gaps  (designed with the help of DEI and survey experts)
  • An action-oriented list of recommended goals based on your assessment and sustainable pathway forward 
  • Best practices and new content for each step of the DEI journey 
  • A one-stop dashboard with results, score breakdowns, and data to make sharing progress with key stakeholders and your team easy

The comprehensive technology gauges your organization’s DEI gaps and strengths, and then recommends goals that are prioritized based on potential impact. Each goal is equipped with best practices and case studies to guide teams across every step of their DEI journey, and helps encourage broad participation with features that both assign ownership and encourage accountability to each goal. 

Progress towards goals is visible on an intuitive Dashboard, which is also downloadable so the sharing of DEI stories and successes with employees, leadership, and investors, is easy and powerful.

Here’s what a few of our companies have shared about the new EI: 

“Mathison’s Equity Index is our go-to DE&I baseline. It gives us an actionable way to diagnose our DE&I gaps, gain immediate insights into where we need to focus, then assign goals and actions to our team to bring everyone along. We are beyond excited with this.”

  • Emily Steuerwald, People Experience Director at Acorn Health

"Mathison's Equity Index is invaluable. It gives you thoughtful and comprehensive DEI policies and metrics, specific goals that focus on your areas of greatest need, and guided resources that empower you to improve."

  • Ciara Gogan, Head of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion for Global Partners

We know that every person and every organization is different, and the goals you set should reflect that. That’s why we’ve customized our technology to allow you to go at your own pace so you can achieve DEI transformation in a sustainable way. 

No matter where you’re at in your DEI journey, you can always continue to learn, iterate on processes, and grow. And it’s never too late to begin. Ready to get on the path to accelerate your DEI journey?
