DEI Maturity Assessment
We are excited to announce the launch of the ACC Foundation DEI Maturity Assessment, powered by Ethisphere. This innovative resource takes the methodology to evaluate DEI progress from the acclaimed ACC Foundation DEI Maturity Model and creates an online assessment module which allows organizations to quickly and easily benchmark their DEI efforts to those of their peers and receive a written self-assessment generated by the module for the organization’s internal review. The best part is that this tool is offered as a free service by ACC and Ethisphere for use by the entire legal and business communities.
