How to Measure Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion | Gartner for HR

People Analytics

This 13-page report provides recommendations for measuring the three components of diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI). The report starts by providing definitions for each component, shares measures for each, and highlights how to avoid common pitfalls associated with measuring each component. There are various insights in this report, including 1) There are seven main drivers of Inclusion (page 5) ranging from decision-making (members of my team fairly consider ideas and suggestions offered by other team members), psychological safety (I feel welcome to express my true feelings at work), trust (communication we receive from the organization is honest and open) to belonging (people in my organization care about me).  2) Regarding Equity, which is both fair treatment and equality of access to opportunity, Figure 1. on page 7 shows the extent to which talent management ( TM ) processes are susceptible to bias, including the top three: 1) promotions/succession, 2) recruiting, and 3) performance management. Table 1 on page 9 provides recommendations to increase equity in TM processes. Other ideas are discussed.
