THE NDC INDEX

5 ASSESSMENT AREAS

PARTICIPATION CRITERIA

BEST COMPANIES

The NDC Index is a measurement of organizational commitment to diversity and inclusion among companies in the United States.
The index rates companies on CEO engagement as well as corporate initiatives, policies, and programs in support of inclusion.
Any United States company with a minimum of 500 employees or any multinational Fortune 1000 company with subsidiaries in the United States.
The NDC Index recognizes companies with a score of 90 or above as Best Companies in the U.S. for diversity and inclusion.

Gain Organizational Insight

The NDC Index employs five assessment areas to determine to what extent diversity and inclusion organizational practices are employed across large companies. It scores companies overall and in each area, as well as compares these scores with participating companies.

  • CEO Engagement
  • Benefits, Policies, and Initiatives
  • Supplier Diversity
  • Community Outreach
  • Corporate Social Responsibility

 

To provide comprehensive benchmarking services, companies submit a workforce profile section. This section is not used in the assessment to rate companies on D&I initiatives.

Participation Criteria

To participate in the NDC Index, your company may be publicly or privately held and must have a minimum of 500 employees. Any Fortune 1000 company or multinational companies with subsidiaries in the U.S. may participate.
