The India Workplace Equality Index (IWEI) is India’s only comprehensive benchmarking tool for companies to measure their progress on LGBT+ inclusion. The IWEI conducts an in-depth study to measure where your organization stands on the spectrum of inclusion and allows organizations to navigate the challenges of embedding LGBT+ inclusion and provides them with a clear roadmap to follow, with a planning structure, best practices, guidelines, and more.

Over the past 3 editions, we’ve helped organizations gauge what they are doing right, where they can improve, and how they can make their workplace diverse and LGBT+ inclusive.

The IWEI also has a supplementary & voluntary Employee Feedback Survey which helps reflect the lived experiences of your employees.
It allows organizations to assess if their workplace practices are enabling LGBT+ employees to be themselves and helping them to realize their full potential.
The survey also assesses whether non-LGBT+ employees feel empowered to be good allies.
Results of the survey do not affect the IWEI Employer Score and are shared in the customized debrief report.

Measuring Inclusion

The Index studies 9 parameters across different areas of employment policy and practice. Each entrant compiles a submission, accompanied by supporting evidence, which demonstrates their organisation’s performance against the set of best-practice criteria. The IWEI team then conducts a thorough review of each submission to give companies a holistic picture of where they stand on inclusion.
