Using specific measurable criteria, the Employer Inclusivity Index distinguishes between the intent of leadership’s diversity and inclusion plans and the life-lived experience in the workplace. This exciting new initiative eliminates any subjective guesswork in assessing how inclusive a workplace is, ranking each employer based on qualitative and quantitative research with a score that reflects its true inclusivity based on leading indicators and best practices.

With strict compliance rules for confidentiality, survey questions and supporting documentation are assessed by a panel of third-party subject experts against indices derived from the internationally respected Global Diversity and Inclusion Benchmarks.

The deliverable is a report outlining the organization’s score, comprehensively explaining it and supported with steps that can be taken to improve the inclusivity of the organization. We are in pilot phase with this initiative with a number of employers in Alberta.

This project has been undertaken with financial support from the Government of Alberta’s Foreign Qualifications Recognition Innovation Fund.
