Why DEI Analytics?
Before we get to the list, here’s why diversity and inclusion analytics are essential. DEI analytics give you a picture of how diverse your business is. There are many uses for DEI data, but here are 5 important ones:
- Understanding the people who work for you at a deeper level.
- Creating new diversity goals or policies to drive change.
- Identifying bias that might hinder diverse hiring, development, or promotions.
- Creating a business case for new diversity tools and initiatives.
- Using DEI analytics to create transparency in diversity reports.
Now, let’s dive into 7 DEI analytics tools in the market today.
Biased words can find their way to your job descriptions, putting off talent from underrepresented groups. This affects the diversity and inclusion analytics you track during hiring (and beyond).
Ongig’s Text Analyzer scans your job description text for possible exclusionary words and offers inclusive replacements. If you remove exclusionary phrases, the % of diverse hires can grow (giving your DEI analytics a positive boost).
Ongig can also help re-design your career site, making it more SEO-friendly, engaging, searchable, and inclusive. Client career sites come with a targeted tracking dashboard catered to diversity and hiring goals.

DEI analytics can only be effective if there are measures you can quantify. For example, how do you measure bias? What are the metrics for equity?

What’s unique about Dandi is it has a network of DEI advisory boards. This board is composed of people from different backgrounds who are all experts in diversity and inclusion. This group of people offers ongoing input to your company as you implement your DEI initiatives.
