The very first step to embracing equality, diversity and inclusion in your organisation

The Equal Group provides end to end EDI audits to help organisations identify areas where they can make sustainable and incremental improvements in terms of equality, diversity and inclusion. We highly recommend your organisation to do the EDI audit before you proceed with any EDI initiatives. The audit will guide your organisation on how to allocate your resources and what EDI strategies to implement in order to reap all the advantages that come from embracing diversity and inclusion.

What does the EDI Audit do?

EDI Audits Provide a Starting Point

In order to measure the success of your equality, diversity and inclusion efforts, you must understand what your baseline level of performance is. Only then can progress be made.

EDI Audits Provide Independent Insight

It's always beneficial to get an independent view of your organisation in relation to equality, diversity and inclusion activities. This can also be beneficial for staff morale.

EDI Audits Provide Assurance

Our audits focus on ensuring that your equality, diversity and inclusion efforts are having the desired effect - ultimately allowing you to focus on those areas that are most beneficial.
