DIVERSITY, EQUITY & INCLUSION

Financial Focus, Measurable Impact

Enterprises that have more diverse workforces are 35% more likely to see greater financial results than industry averages. Enterprises that have diverse management teams have 19% higher revenue. Realizing results requires a strategic and integrated approach.  Our data-driven framework is uniquely designed to positively impact financial performance and enterprise culture.

CIQ

Our proprietary data tool, the Cultural Impact Quotient (CIQ) assessment, measures the D&I maturity of your enterprise.  In just 24 questions and under 10 minutes, learn where your enterprise is in its diversity and inclusion journey, and where it still needs to go. Is your enterprise Foundational, Emerging, Capacity Building, or Strategically Integrated?  And find out how you compare to your peers in our comprehensive, annual bench-marking report.

 

TAKE THE CIQ and Achieve the NEXT level.

CIQ MATURITY MODEL

FOUNDATIONAL.  You are at the very basic stages of creating a diversity and inclusion initiative and are establishing core practices focused mainly on compliance.

EMERGING.  You are at the second stage of the maturity model and are focused on establishing strategy and alignment to create a roadmap for results.

CAPACITY BUILDING.  You are implementing strategies that build on creating an inclusive and collaborative culture in the areas of talent acquisition, talent development and engagement, and leadership and succession planning.

STRATEGICALLY INTEGRATED.  You are integrating diversity and inclusion into business operations and are beginning to measure the financial impact of your work.
