Exposing Structural Inequalities

Best Practices

Equality of opportunity does not emerge on its own. In contrast, the unequal treatment of individuals often occurs without any conscious intention. Moreover, in complex organizations, there are often structurally determined inequalities entrenched in norms and actions without being visible. These instruments provide a way of recording qualitative criteria and quantitative parameters relating to equal opportunities in the company.

The systematic analysis of potential inequalities initially serves as an assessment of the current situation and identifies the most important fields of action. However, you can also use it to review the effectiveness of existing and new measures. By correlating data from different areas of the organization, you may obtain valuable conclusions about development and gain additional insights.
