Diversity Data Report and 14-Step Framework

A framework intended as a self-assessment and quality assurance method for diversity data collection among social enterprises and social investors.

Diversity Data Project Diversity Data Report & Framework — Diversity Forum

The Diversity Data Project Report explores the multifaceted landscape of diversity data collection among social enterprises and social investors. Through listening exercises, co-creation sessions, and extensive research, the project identifies key challenges and proposes a 14-step framework to improve diversity data practices. This framework, intended for self-assessment and quality assurance, offers guidelines at sectoral, organizational, and individual levels to ensure data collection is user-centered, inclusive, and purposeful. The report emphasizes the importance of cross-sector collaboration and ongoing development to achieve meaningful progress in equity, diversity, and inclusion within the social sector.
