Why Use This Worksheet

The default ways of hiring, compensating employees and managing teams inherently reinforce deep racial and gender divides. This can keep even the organizations who most value diversity and inclusion stuck without a clear path forward. Putting your values into action requires that you regularly and intentionally evaluate the equity of your talent practices. The assessment beginning on the next page is intended to help you identify strength areas as well as areas requiring improvement, deeper exploration, or external support. We recommend you work with a diverse group of 3-5 colleagues from management as well as your HR/People team to work through the assessment together.

Put your values to work. Act on equity.

We believe equity isn’t a box to check. It’s a daily action. Someone’s unique identity isn’t something to overcome–when paired with the right opportunity, it becomes one of their greatest professional assets. We exist to empower social impact organizations to recognize and overcome unconscious bias, racism and sexism so they can build a workforce that reflects and strengthens the communities they serve.
