Diversity & Inclusiveness Audit™

Derive data for diversity and inclusion strategy

The Problem

You need to better understand the demographics and culture of your workforce, so that you can create a diverse and inclusive organisation.

Related challenges include:

  • any audit can be a daunting project
  • “diversity” can be a sensitive subject
  • your business wants to gain diversity accreditation
  • it’s hard to uncouple your own biases when reviewing the biases of the team that you are a part of
  • audit data can quickly become unwieldy and distracting noise if not managed properly
  • there is limited budget for external support and no time to instruct
  • you lack the meaningful, objective data that you would need to make informed decisions

If only there was an easy to implement tool that you could use to generate clear and concise data about your legal department’s existing diversity profile.

The GLS Solution

GLS’s Diversity & Inclusiveness Audit™ is a simple and powerful audit toolkit that allows you to gather the data you need to craft better strategies to enhance diversity, inclusion and business performance.

Diversity & Inclusiveness Audit™ is conducted in a confidential and secure manner to facilitate free gathering of accurate, objective information.

Diversity & Inclusiveness Audit™ helps you efficiently and professionally gather objective, usable data about your legal function’s: 

  • Data:
    • diversity diagnostics
    • equality impact assessments
    • gender pay gap analysis
    • supplier diversity review
  • Policies:
    • what suite of policies does the company have?
    • do the policies reflect a diverse and inclusive culture driven by leadership?
    • are the policies adaptive/able to accommodate a dynamic workforce?
  • Processes:
    • who was the target audience that your processes were designed for?
    • do your processes unintentionally exclude good potential candidates?
    • how your internal processes can be improved?
  • Culture:
    • who is represented by your staff?
    • what are the views of your staff?
    • how do your policies and processes work impact your staff?
    • do your staff feel safe and encouraged to contribute to your business?
    • do your staff feel able to share their ideas and opinions?
