If organizations are really going to hold themselves accountable to data-driven standards that correct racial inequities, we need both qualitative and quantitative methods. A justice-centered approach to data analysis, often conducted as equity or civil rights audits, requires us to acknowledge and address the impact of culture and power within organizations.
During this session, we will walk through a justice-centered framework for creating accountability measures for equitable cultural change and you’ll have the opportunity to practice creating justice-centered metrics as they relate to employee well-being, talent acquisition, learning and development, and supply chain and procurement.
• Reflect on key questions and considerations for how to better measure equity and justice across organizational goals
• Identify possible models that embed justice across organizational goals (i.e., professional development, procurement, talent acquisition)
• Ideate and practice creating justice-centered measures of impact for organizational goals to measure collective capacity for change
