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.
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.
There are no fees associated with participation in the NDC Index.

All participating companies will be scored on a scale of 0 to 100 points. Each company will receive a free scorecard and report detailing the overall assessment results and the performance breakdown according to the key diversity and inclusion areas. The report will allow you to yearly benchmark your company’s diversity and inclusion progress and compare your performance with participating companies.
All companies submitting to the 2020 NDC Index will be honored as participants on our NDC Index and National Diversity Council website. Starting in 2021, all participating companies will have their scores published as part of our NDC Index online and in-print reporting.
