Mathison, an all-in-one diversity, equity and inclusion (DE&I) platform, today announced the launch of its new Equity Index. The index allows employers to build action plans, mobilize employees and measure the ongoing impact of their DE&I initiatives.

The Equity Index provides a framework for auditing the entire talent life cycle. It identifies changes that will advance diversity, recruiting and training. Employers can build and manage their DE&I road maps on an ongoing basis in the way they set goals, benchmark and report progress. The index is based on more than three years of comprehensive research. Hundreds of DE&I experts and HR professionals across more than 25 industries participated in the research.

Mathison was co-founded in 2019 by Dave Walsh and Arthur Woods. The company name honors Alan Mathison Turing. Highly influential in the development of theoretical computer science, Turing helped crack the German Enigma Code during World War II. Despite this, he never received the recognition he deserved and instead was persecuted for being gay. The company says that Turing “represents brilliance of mind, true innovation, genuine inspiration and triumph over adversity — core values that we strive to embody at our company today.”

Diagnostics and Direction

As Mathison explains on their website, “Wherever you are in the [DE&I] process, we meet you there and help accelerate your progress.” The Equity Index diagnoses organizations’ operations, policies and practices to gauge DE&I gaps and strengths. The system recommends personalized and prioritized DE&I goals that are mapped to an extensive knowledge base of DE&I guides, case studies and training. Teams are guided across every step of their DE&I journey. Progress is visible on an intuitive, downloadable dashboard, so the sharing of DEI progress and metrics is easy and powerful.

Beyond its being the right thing to do, data shows that companies who value diversity and inclusion outperform other companies by as much as 400% according to Great Places to Work.


Mathison’s Dave Walsh

“Despite the best intentions, we’ve seen countless organizations struggle to identify DE&I gaps, get buy-in and make ongoing progress,” said Walsh, who also serves as Mathison’s CEO. “We’re excited to roll out the new Equity Index to enable organizations to accelerate, manage and measure their DE&I impact and affect real change.”
