This self-assessment is a snapshot of how well your organization is doing on The Inclusion Project (TIP)’s Racial Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion (REDI) Continuum. An organization’s REDI process is fluid, and, depending on the initiatives, can move to a deeper level of engagement. In this self-assessment, we are using a sample of the larger TIP-REDI Assessment, which provides recommendations for organizations on strategic pathways for an equitable future. This mini self-assessment will help you determine your next steps in the REDI process.
Please complete this self-assessment as honestly and to the best of your knowledge.
Organization has a clear and explicitly stated commitment to REDI
Board and Senior Leadership reinforce the commitment to REDI in the operational decisions being taken
Organization respects and recognizes full identities of BIPOC staff and board members (sexual orientation, gender identity and expression, immigration status, ability status, age, languages spoken, etc.)
Staff is provided with organizational space, time, resources, and structure to discuss and respond to issues of racism within and outside your organization?
Employees are comfortable talking about their background and cultural experiences with their colleagues
Employees know the process of filing complaints regarding discrimination and harassment within the organization?
Score between 1- 6 – No REDI work has begun; diversity and a culture of inclusion are not part of organizational goals. Recommend bringing leadership on with a commitment to inclusion before taking the next step.
Score between 7 – 15 – A compliance mindset; actions are taken primarily to comply with relevant laws and social pressures. Our complete REDI assessment can help you figure out a plan to move from compliance to inclusion.
Score 16- 23 – A clear awareness of the value and the need for REDI implementation; starting to implement REDI but lacking a systemic approach. Working with the TIP team of consultants will help you to establish a systemic approach to REDI.
Score 24 – 30 – Implementing REDI systemically, showing improved results and outcomes. The TIP REDI assessment will provide a list of detailed recommendations and actionable next steps for your organization to become a more inclusive moving forward and to embed REDI in all your policies, programs, processes and practices.
