Only 31.1% have set a company policy in the D&I area.
When including those with a policy limited to a pilot or single initiative, the number increases to 51.9%. This indicates a focus on single initiatives rather than a holistic company approach. What is included in companies’ D&I policies reflects the self-assessed maturity levels. Most companies are progressing, and the focus seems to be on principles & objectives (41.8%) and accountabilities & responsibilities (36.8%). Fewer companies focus on targeted actions and metrics.
Few apply structured measurements and metrics. Only 21.5% have set company goals overall, while 17.1% have set goals for pilots or single initiatives. The percentage setting performance indicators for D&I initiatives is even lower. When starting a journey, metrics is often not the natural first step. However, to improve maturity and progress, measurements and metrics are essential to a structured approach and progress.
