Online Diversity Assessment now available online

The Commission on Economic Inclusion, a program of the Greater Cleveland Partnership (GCP), has collected data and reported on the status of diversity and inclusion in Northeast Ohio for 16 years using the Employers Survey on Diversity, now known as the Diversity & Inclusion Organization Assessment.

The results of the D&I Organization Assessment function as a barometer of inclusion in our region and provide employers with a tool and benchmarks for examining their own diversity and inclusion efforts.

During the past year, the Commission solicited feedback from stakeholders in various industries and job responsibilities and implemented a full re-design of the Assessment using a new online platform. The result is a far more powerful tool that is easier to use and will provide more meaningful feedback in a tighter time frame.

The new Assessment was rolled out last week to organizations that have participated in the past, but it is also available to all GCP members as a benefit of membership. We encourage you to take advantage of this great opportunity!

Employers who complete the D&I Assessment will receive immediate feedback upon making their final submission, along with suggested resources which can be useful for internal diversity and inclusion strategic planning. The D&I Assessment and the associated resources can be helpful to any organization – whether they have an established D&I program in place, or they are looking for a place to start.

A report on aggregate results of all employers’ data, as well as a confidential individual scorecard for each organization that participated, will be distributed after the data collection is complete.
