EIC 2022 Equity Benchmarking Study

4. Sustaining Change

Sustaining change ranks third amongst the 4 dimensions in the EIC-DEI framework with a score of 3.95 out of 5. Similar to the accountability dimension, there is a continuing trend emerging for gender and ethnicity where male survey respondents rate their DEI experience higher than their female colleagues by 6%. Respondents who identified as White, rate their DEI experience higher than other colleagues in the industry by 8%. Supporting data trends emerging from the study: When analysing the dimension of Sustaining Change, the Gender, Ethnicity, Size and Job Grade demographics had certain significant findings. Through the analysis of Job grade, those who are in board-level positions or senior management positions selected scores 11% and 6% (respectively) higher than the other job grades on average. When drilling down further, both these grades are heavily dominated by White participants. These White participants perform, on average 17% higher than Multiracial participants and more than 10% higher than Black participants (the lowest scoring two demographics). More specifically, White men score the highest and performed more than 16% better than Black women who were one of the lowest scoring demographics. Overall, men rate their DEI experience in Sustaining Change, almost 6% higher than all women. Hence, this dimension explores the correlation between sustaining change and ethnicity, organisation size, gender and job grade to understand the impacts on the DEI experience in the industry.
