The submission process

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. The NDC Index recognizes companies with a score of 90 or higher as the Best Companies for Diversity in the U.S.

Information Sessions

Each year we host a series of free webinars to interested participants detailing the NDC Index purpose, scope, and reporting process. Webinars include a Q&A session.


Company representatives can register for the NDC Index via our website. Within a few days, we will send companies their unique-survey link to access the survey. Only one representative may register for each company. 

Data Entry

In the fall, company representatives can begin completing the survey. Our NDC Index team is available to answer any questions and help companies complete their submission. 


Company representatives automatically receive a link to download a copy of their responses and their company’s preliminary score. While all submissions are considered final, changes can be made through the unique survey link before the deadline.

Data Analysis

Our NDC Index team manually verifies that all preliminary scores are accurate and calculates scores for each assessment area. We also analyze company responses in relation to diversity best practices and display findings in easy to read infographics.


Our NDC Index team sends company representatives their free NDC Index Report by email by then of 2Q. This detailed 10-page publication displays the scored questions and a comparative analysis of each company’s performance in relation to participating companies.
