Pursuant to Executive Order 13583 and to the Government-wide Strategic Plan, which was published on November 17, 2011, the OPM Office of Diversity and Inclusion (ODI) developed a D&I Dashboard for agency use in workforce planning and reporting, with information culled from the Federal Employee Viewpoint Survey and the Enterprise Human Resources Integration data sets.

The Diversity and Inclusion (D&I) Dashboard is a government specific tool created to provide agencies with demographic data about hiring, group attrition, employee inclusion perceptions, and overall accountability in regard to D&I efforts. One of the goals of the Diversity and Inclusion (D&I) Dashboard is to provide data that is formatted in such a way that anyone can view it, explore it and readily understand it.

Fostering inclusive work environments and realizing the full potential of our workforce's diversity requires agencies to employ effective management practices. To that end, the Office of Diversity and Inclusion has recently developed a set of change management tools to supplement the inclusion index. The index and tools, referred to jointly as the New Inclusion Quotient (The New IQ) will arm agencies with instruments and practices necessary to support diversity and inclusion more fully. In addition, OPM will continue to promote proven practices in using all workforce data to inform everyday support diversity and inclusion in the workplace.

The New IQ scores are calculated using a subset of 20 questions from the Employment Viewpoint Survey (EVS). This metric is separated into several factors or 5 Inclusive habits: Fair, Open, Cooperative, Supportive, Empowering. Research confirms that workplace inclusion is a contributing factor to employee engagement and organizational performance. One of the major issues facing organizations and the federal government in regard to inclusion is how to properly measure it and improve an inherently intangible aspect of group interaction, which the New IQ scores help accomplish.

Inclusion Categories 2011 2012 2013
Fair Environment 46% 44% 43%
Open Environment 58% 56% 55%
Cooperative Environment 57% 55% 54%
Supportive Environment 74% 74% 74%
Empowering Environment 60% 59% 56%

* The data found in the Inclusion Index or New IQ is taken from the Federal Employee Viewpoint Survey (FEVS) for the corresponding year and based on a set of 20 questions. The data for this measure is calculated using weighted responses from FEVS and includes respondents from various agencies. For a list of agencies that have participated please visit:
