  • How about people of different ages and professional backgrounds?
  • Does your organization have a documented plan for diversity?
  • Does the plan include SMART goals?
  • Does the plan list metrics to measure progress toward their diversity goals?
  • Does your organization monitor progress toward diversity goals?
  • Does your organization include a way for stakeholders to anonymously report concerns and wrongdoing?
  • Are these reports monitored, and thorough investigations conducted?
  • Is appropriate action taken on all substantiated allegations?
  • Is the governing body appropriately informed of the most serious allegations?
  • Are reports monitored to create trending data to indicate troubled areas within the organization?
  • Do employees feel physically safe from harm in their workspace?
  • Do employees enjoy a workplace free from harassment or discrimination?
  • Does your organization have a social media policy?
  • Are all social media posts by the company properly reviewed for compliance, relevance, and appropriateness prior to posting?
