W472: Measure What Matters: Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, Accessibility and Belonging (DEIAB)


When it comes to measuring success in the realm of diversity, equity, inclusion, accessibility, and belonging (DEIAB), it’s important to “measure what matters.” Organizations can use a variety of metrics to track progress, such as employee engagement surveys, demographic data, and retention rates. However, there are also significant obstacles to accurately measuring DEIAB success, including unconscious biases and resistance to change.
