KPIs That Provide a Universal Measurement for Gender & Diversity

You can’t manage what you can’t measure; currently, there is no universal standard for measuring diversity in organizations.

Improving diversity in the workforce begins with accurate measurement of results, not efforts. We are promoting using three Key Performance Indicators(KPIs) to focus attention on pay and representation in the all-important talent pipeline of an organization

The KPIs provide a baseline for monitoring progress over time and for highlighting areas of concern.
The right measurements are critical. The GDKA KPIs measure gender and underrepresented groups where applicable (e.g., race and ethnicity in the US). These three high-level measurements provide an overview of the diversity in your workforce:

Board Representation

Percentage of representation on an organization’s board

Representation

Percentage of representation by employment category

Pay Equality

The ratio of compensation by employee category (e.g., equal pay for equal work)

Using the KPIs as an internal measurement tool enables companies to see where pipeline issues exist so they can address those issues. If disclosure is required by regulators or investors, understanding your data will also help inform your response.
