Let’s celebrate your EDI successes, then spur major and marginal gains

Our diversity audits enable businesses to take data-driven action on their way to becoming more ethical, equitable and inclusive places to work. We’ll combine data collection and analysis with staff consultation to give you a holistic view of your progress on diversity, equity and inclusion. In turn, you’ll be able to craft better EDI policies and strategies that attract top talent, unleash team creativity, and boost business performance.

A more positive take on diversity auditing

Send a powerful signal to staff and clients of your commitment to EDI

Our specialist auditors will focus on four key EDI dimensions: data, policies, processes and culture. Alongside desk analysis, we’ll run confidential interviews and focus groups to glean valuable insights from staff on their experiences, plus ideas that can move the organization forward. These sessions allow us to understand what’s really happening day to day—from the staff canteen to the shopfloor.

Audits are often associated with sweat-breaking criticism from outside. We take a more positive view, working in partnership with our clients and making a point of highlighting what’s already being done well. We’ll also provide practical, measurable recommendations on EDI best practice and areas for development. And we’ll present our findings in a way that lands and generates momentum for the tasks at hand.

Customise your audit

Tailor-make your EDI action-planning

We apply our tried-and-tested audit framework to each organization we work with. That said, you have the option to spotlight one or several EDI themes in line with your strategic priorities. Sample themes include:

  • Workforce demographics
  • Audience representation
  • Talent pipeline and retention
  • Recruitment and selection
  • Reward, pay and promotion (including pay gaps)
  • Communications and company signals

What our clients say

EW tailored the D&I audit to focus exactly where we needed. They were flexible and available and their consultant was a great partner to engage with our steering group and leadership team. The outcomes have formed the basis of our three-year Belonging strategy, and I’m looking forward to having another audit in three years to see how far we’ve come!
