The Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Maturity Evaluator Lite (DEI-ME Lite) is a short survey created by TDC Global based on global best practice in DEI for leaders to assess their DEI maturity across their organisation.
Through the DEI-ME Lite results, you will be able to:
- Identify your areas of strength and areas of opportunity that impact DEI and your DEI targets
- Focus on the right initiatives to optimise effort and resources
- Facilitate strategic conversations on how to accelerate DEI management in a focused, practical & structured way
Not only do the questions prompt ideas for initiatives, but leaders are encouraged to use the results to determine what DEI initiatives they should prioritise with confidence and enables leaders to build a strong business case that they can revert back to annually to ensure they are making progress.
Example question (on a scale of 1 to 5): My organisation’s leadership team actively champions DEI and models inclusive behaviours & attitudes
Who should complete?
The tool is used by leaders when they are designing or optimising their DEI strategy. The results help them to understand where they should invest their time and resources to see the biggest impact.
How does it work?
The tool allows leaders to assess themselves across 4 pillars that are critical to the success of DEI strategies/initiatives: Hiring, Training, Promoting & Culture. Organisations then fall into one of four maturity stages: Getting Started, On The Journey, Making Progress or Mastering, Scaling & Winning. The results will show them their strengths and areas of opportunities.
The DEI-ME Lite has been modelled after the comprehensive 40-question tool which is available for those seeking a full assessment. If you would like access to the full tool, please contact us.
Stages of DEI Maturity
DEI is a continuous improvement process and at any stage of maturity, it is important to continue to keep innovating solutions to drive change.
