TL;DR

  • This infographic summarizes key insights from our report, DEIB Analytics: A Guide to Why & How to Get Started
  • Applying analytics to DEIB has been historically challenging as DEIB and PA leaders often have different backgrounds, reporting structures, problem solving approaches, and levels / types of ownership
  • Understanding demographic data is the first step to DEIB analytics, followed by inclusion analytics
  • There’s an iterative, 8-step model that leaders can use to map out their DEIB analytics approach which includes identifying partners, getting demographic data in order, understanding the problem, identifying additional data, prioritizing problems, analyzing and refining, sharing, and finally, taking action

The COVID-19 pandemic, the social justice pandemic, and now, the uneven, uncertain return to the office have all contributed in shifting our perspective on diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging (DEIB). We all know that what gets measured is what gets done. As a result, people analytics (PA) is increasingly more involved in DEIB efforts than ever. Yet, many leaders struggle to bring together the 2 disciplines of people analytics and DEIB.
