Leaders across all sectors are increasingly striving to embrace an equity mindset. The interdependent relationships between strategy, operations and culture are complex and there is no playbook that spells out how to infuse fairness into every critical organizational decision and deed. In comes the Equity Maturity Model (EqMM), a strikingly simple tool to institutionalize a fuller commitment to equity and the alleviation of inequity.
As leaders, teams, and organizations wrestle with the EqMM, its implications and the actionable insights it yields, they experience a transformative shift in understanding. They become more equipped to diagnose their current baseline performance, gain clarity on gaps, and identify ongoing opportunities for learning and growth. They realize that an equity orientation can be systematically built and engineered to last.
The Equity Maturity Model encompasses all facets of performance and behavior necessary for equity assurance.
An exhaustive landscape scan and literature review demonstrate that no one organization has evolved to the point of mastery across
all 12 dimensions; each is a work in progress.
Note: Organizations within any sector (i.e., private, philanthropic, academic, public) can use the EqMM.
