Frequently Asked Questions

How can I take the Race Equ(al)ity Index?
You're ready to benchmark your company's policies and practices. Reach out to our team to receive instructions on what you'll need to get started.
How are the REI scores calculated?
The REI ranked questions are assigned scores, and are distributed on a weighting scale by category. After taking the index, we will provide you with aggregate and category specific scores, and will talk your team through the results.
What does a high REI score mean?
Your organization may index low on benefits and healthcare, but your development programs are top notch. Each high (and low) score will point directly to a particular program or practice that your company engages in that directly impacts equity and inclusion; specifically for BIPOC employees.
Is it open to international companies?
At the moment, the REI is only available to companies with 100 or more employees in the US.

The Race Equ(al)ity Index was something that challenged us to be honest about the current state of the company, and not just focus on our plans for the future.
