Spark measurable change with our most in-depth diversity data analytics and action-planning tools

We’ve been auditing progress on equality, diversity and inclusion for the past 30 years. With a dedicated team of diversity auditors, we’re well equipped to support your EDI efforts and drive smart decision-making with clear, measurable outcomes. With our practical, data-driven approach, you’ll benefit from crystal-clear reporting and compelling action plans that won’t languish in a desk drawer.

An EW Group diversity audit provides a comprehensive, in-depth review of EDI practice across your entire organization. Mixing qualitative and quantitative methods, we’ll produce a detailed report and a suite of tailored, practical recommendations—from short-term quick wins to longer-term aspirations. Although we apply the same audit framework to each organization, you can decide to tailor our approach to emphasize a particular EDI theme or themes, in line with your most pressing business needs.

For businesses seeking an ongoing, longer-term commitment to developing a diverse and inclusive culture, we also offer a gold-standard diversity accreditation in the form of our Diversity Development Standard. With this certified version of our diversity audits, externally validated by our Awarding Panel, we’ll review your progress against the Diversity Development Standard every two years, ensuring tangible, accountable progress towards your EDI goals.
