How are the inclusion and equity scores calculated?

We calculate an overall inclusion score by averaging the values obtained for your organization in each of the eight individual pillars. The challenge with this approach is that a small segment of employees with a low inclusion score can be hidden in an overall high score. It is not unusual to see variations in workplace experiences among employees. However, when there are variations that uniquely impact specific demographic segments, it is important to evaluate where organizational solutions are needed. For this reason we calculate an equity score which compares the inclusion scores from the demographic segments with the highest inclusion score and the demographic segments with the lowest inclusion score. A high equity score reflects small differences between the groups, reflecting greater equity. A low score reflects a large gap in experiences by demographic segment, and thus greater inequity.
