To effect true cultural change an organisation needs to approach D&I work strategically.

Mix’s audit methodology is people-focused, agile and targeted: we don’t believe in compiling data for data’s sake!

Audit Process.

Every audit which we deliver is different, but our process broadly follows the same pattern:


Kick off meeting

Working collaboratively to establish which metrics we need to gather and why


Desk Review

Our team review all internal policies and documents which relate to D&I


Individual Direct Interviews

With key stakeholders from across the business


Focus Groups and Colleague Conversations

What is it like to work in your organisation? Do colleagues feel a sense of inclusion and belonging?


Employee Survey

An online survey of your people and culture through a D&I lens


External D&I Audit

An analysis of how your company looks externally to potential employees and investors versus two key competitors


Challenge Mapping Workshop

Reflecting on the gathered data, drawing out key themes that are priority areas for action


How do we benchmark?

We use an internationally recognised benchmarking tool which can be utilised by your own HR Team/D&I Lead annually.

This analyses 14 key areas, identifying whether the organisation is inactive / reactive / proactive / progressive or demonstrates Best Practice in each area.

We recommend this as a practical way to ensure that your Diversity & Inclusion initiatives deliver year on year.
