NDC Index


Registration for the 2022 NDC Index opens October 2021.

What we do

We Elevate Inclusion

The NDC Index is a measurement of organizational commitment to diversity and inclusion among companies in the U.S. The index rates companies on CEO engagement as well as corporate initiatives, policies, and programs in support of inclusion. It is free to register and participate in the NDC Index. Participating companies receive the NDC Index Report free of charge. 


The NDC Index survey and registration form opens each fall. To register, one company representative must submit their contact information by clicking the registration button available on this website. Returning participants can make changes to a previous submission, but must contact our NDC Index team to obtain their original unique survey link to gain access to the survey form.


Each company that participates in the NDC Index is rated on an overall scale of 0 to 100 and given a score on each of the five assessment areas. All participating companies receive complimentary NDC Index Report, which details their performance breakdown in relation to all participating companies. Only submitted survey responses are recorded and scored.

Criteria for Participation

The NDC Index is available to companies that have a corporate managerial structure. It is limited to companies that have more than 500 employees. These include:

  • publicly or privately held U.S. companies
  • Fortune 1000 companies
  • multinational companies with subsidiaries in the U.S.

Currently, the NDC Index is not open to  higher education institutions.

NDC Index Report

Each participating company receives their complimentary NDC Index Report. The NDC Index Report displays the points companies received overall and in each assessment area. It also includes five pages of data analysis comparing their overall and assessment area scores with other participating companies.

Our Value Proposition

In line with the mission and vision of the National Diversity Council, the NDC Index aims to drive the value of diversity and inclusion within companies at the regional, state, and national level. Ultimately, our goal is to advocate for diversity as a business imperative for companies across the United States and to help them increase opportunities for innovation and long-term sustainable growth.

To this end, the NDC Index project began with a desire to help NDC partner companies benchmark their Diversity and Inclusion (D&I) organizational goals. As the Index developed, however, we realized that such a powerful and informative analytical tool could have a wider audience and a broader impact. Hence, we designed this survey to help professionals develop and strengthen their own organizational strategies based upon current industry norms and market relevancy.

We invite you to take the next step for your organization by registering for the NDC Index today.
