To address the ever-present demand for change, the Center for Economic Inclusion has developed the Racial Equity Dividends Index, a comprehensive tool to help businesses measure their progress towards building racially equitable and inclusive workplaces in Minnesota.
The Index assesses 37 business practices across the categories of leadership, hiring, culture, procurement, philanthropy, public policy, and products. Collectively, these practices represent emerging standards that are necessary to advance racial equity and inclusion in workplaces.
The Index is designed for midsized and large private-sector businesses in Minnesota. Nonprofits and small businesses are welcome to register for and complete the Index survey, but their data may not be included in the 2022 Racial Equity Dividends Report, which will benchmark only private-sector companies. Nonprofits and small businesses who register for the Index will still receive a customized score report with their results.
Upon completion of the Index, businesses will receive a copy of their score in the form of a customized, confidential report in 2022.
