The Equity Audit is a comprehensive benchmarking tool that assesses diversity, equity, and inclusion for schools, nonprofit organizations, and companies.



I have already passed along the sub-contractor and vendor indicators that you shared with our CEO, finance team and equity workgroup lead. The timing of the conversation was perfect because we have just initiated a review of our procurement policies and practices to assure alignment with our commitment to equity. Thank you for this helpful tool!

Equity in Schools

The Equity Audit provides over 180 customized indicators to assess governance, operations, program/pedagogy, adult culture and, where applicable, student culture.  Equity in Schools indicators are linked to specific stakeholder groups: students, parents/family, community partners, vendors/subcontractors, faculty/staff, leadership, and Board. Depending on the school system structure, the Equity Audit also includes indicators that assess DEI in scholarships, teacher grants, and employee assistance benefits.  For school districts, school authorizers and accrediting bodies, portfolio managers, statewide agencies, and funders, the equity audit serves as a benchmarking tool to identify organizational progress and related technical assistance needs across a network of schools.
