The Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) is proud to present its first iteration of the Global Diversity Readiness Index, or G-DRI. The G-DRI is a tool that ranks and rates 47 countries along 39 separate indicators in five broad categories: National Diversity, Workplace Diversity, Social Inclusion, Government Inclusion, and Legal Framework.
The non-interactive version of the G-DRI is available for download for free on this site (see below). An interactive version, which allows users to weight the indicators according to the priorities of their clients or organizations, is available for $99.95 ($79.95 for SHRM members) as part of the SHRM Global Diversity & Inclusion Suite, which also includes PDF copies of two recent SHRM reports (Global Diversity & Inclusion: Perceptions, Practices, & Attitudes, and 2008 SHRM Leadership Summit on Diversity and Inclusion: Executive Summary).
The research and methodology used to create the G-DRI was developed by the Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU), a subsidiary of the Economist Group.
