It's hard to believe that a year has passed since the release of our book, Inclusalytics: How Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Leaders Use Data to Drive Their Work. Authored by myself, Mattingly Solutions’ Chief Consulting Officer, Sertrice Grice, and business book writer, Allison Goldstein, the book explores the intersection of diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) with data analytics. Inclusalytics has been a game-changer in the field of DEI, providing a practical guide for organizations looking to leverage data to advance their DEI goals.
The book is a culmination of mine and Sertrice’s years of experience in the field of DEI, as well as our expertise and training in organizational psychology. Inclusalytics provides a comprehensive overview of the role that data can play in creating more inclusive workplaces. It has helped to shift the conversation around DEI from a moral and business imperative to one that is also backed by data. It has provided organizations with practical tools and strategies for promoting DEI, and has helped to create a more data-driven approach to this critical work.
Inclusalytics also highlights the importance of using data to hold organizations accountable for their DEI efforts. By tracking progress over time, organizations can identify areas of improvement and adjust their strategies accordingly. This helps ensure that DEI efforts are not just a one-time initiative, but an ongoing commitment.
Perhaps most importantly, Inclusalytics provides clarity to how inclusion should be measured and defined—as the behaviors that result in others feeling valued, respected, seen, and heard.
In the year since its release, Inclusalytics has had a significant impact on the field of DEI. Whereas most books of its kind tend to sell about 250 copies throughout its lifetime, Inclusalytics has already sold 1,500 copies without any advertising or paid marketing efforts. To celebrate its one year anniversary and by popular demand, we’ve released the audiobook version of Inclusalytics for those who prefer to listen along.
As we celebrate the one-year anniversary of Inclusalytics, it's worth reflecting on how far we've come, but also on the work that still needs to be done. DEI remains a critical issue in workplaces around the world, and Inclusalytics provides a roadmap for organizations looking to make meaningful, measurable progress. By continuing to prioritize DEI and using data to drive change, we can create more inclusive workplaces that benefit everyone.
