Although we commonly speak about diversity and inclusion, the vast majority of data and initiatives focus entirely on diversity or, to be exact, representation. Last year we introduced our unique human-centric framework to define and measure inclusion, to explain why inclusion should be the most critical element of any D&I strategy, and to show how to link specific D&I inclusion initiatives to traditional business KPIs and to employee satisfaction.

As a result of COVID-19, we have developed a novel remote format that provides detailed real-time measurement of inclusion. The result is a web-based platform that provides deep insights into inclusion, which can be updated regularly to monitor the impact of D&I initiatives without having to wait months or years for significant staffing changes to take place. We will introduce some updated key concepts and conduct an online interactive exercise to show how inclusion is measured and detailed insights can be gleamed from the resulting data.
