Advance equity in your work and your workplace.

 

“He who seeks equity must do equity.”

 

-Joseph Story

Introducing the
Equity Maturity Model.

The Equity Maturity Model details a developmental path to institutionalize an organization’s commitment to the assurance of equity. It is a means to diagnose current performance, provide clarity on gaps, and identify opportunities for learning and growth.

A 12-dimensional approach.

The model encompasses all facets of performance and behavior that should matter. An exhaustive review of the sector demonstrates that no one organization has evolved to the point of mastery across all 12 dimensions; each is a work in progress.
