The Greater Houston Partnership has launched the 2023 Houston Regional Equity & Inclusion Assessment, a robust tool to help businesses and organizations of all sizes enhance their equity and inclusion strategy and increase community impact.
The Partnership held an in-person kickoff event on March 31, with over 40 organizations attending. Attendees heard from past participants about the benefits of the assessment for delivering business results, communicating progress, and generating value for shareholders, employees, customers and the community. The assessment is a standardized diagnostic tool based on the Global DEI Benchmarks and helps organizations evaluate their performance on 275 indicators across 15 different categories. The assessment, which is conducted biennially, is open to all organizations with five or more employees in the 12-county Houston region and closes June 1.
Participants will receive a confidential individual scorecard and the aggregate assessment results will provide industry benchmarking and a collective look at the progress the region has made over the last two years.
Hear from previous participants on how the assessment has helped their organization:
The tool is a major part of the Partnership’s One Houston Together commitment to leverage the power of the business community to address racial inequities.
