As the only LGBT corporate benchmark in the Middle East - Africa region, the South African Workplace Equality Index (SAWEI) was researched and profiled for this best practice guide on diversity and inclusion indices, launched July 2021. We have been interacting with Felicity Daly and Philip Crehan on our work and are thrilled to be profiled in their chapter on LGBT indices across the world. Our friends, the Other Foundation, are also included. The Forum is once again leading the way for LGBT workplace diversity in Africa and putting South Africa firmly on the map.  

About the book:

The Handbook on Diversity and Inclusion Indices critically examines many of the popular and frequently cited indices related to DEI benchmarking and progress tracking. The goal is to provide a better understanding of the indices’ construction, strengths and weaknesses, intended applications, contribution to research and progress towards diversity and equity goals. The editors include detailed reviews of 23 DEI indices including broader, more general measures as well as those that focus on a particular aspect of diversity (e.g., gender, religion). Included are indices that measure diversity, equity, and/or inclusion at organisational, national, and regional levels.
