YWCA HIGH POINT COMMUNITY BUILDERS

2022 DEI Index: Guilford County

This DEI Index is the result of a collaboration among a variety of organizations, including the Community Builders Task Force of the YWCA of High Point and the Guilford Non-Profit Consortium, who wanted to create a community-wide benchmark. 

The DEI Index is not about any individual non-profit. All organizational information is confidential. The survey collects organization data to create an aggregate number that reflects our entire community. Our goal is that this benchmark index encourages all of our non-profits to do better and promote diversity, equity, and inclusion!

The survey regularly refers to Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI). This means the work organizations do to acknowledge the wide differences in humans, including (but not limited to) gender, race, ethnicity, ability, religion, age, and sexual orientation.

DEI work holds that acknowledging differences is just the first step. Organizations should also find ways to reduce the barriers that prevent the full diversity of people from being included and successful.

When this survey refers to DEI training, it refers to programs that do things like: help people understand bias (racial, gender, etc.), educate about systemic barriers to inclusion, offer ways of creating more inclusive and equitable workplaces or communities, etc.

The survey was sent to all non-profits associated with the Guilford Non-Profit Consortium in April 2022. After several reminder emails, the survey was closed in early May 2022. Fifty organizations completed the consent form and entered the survey. The following data is based on their responses.

In some places, there are comparisons to a 2021 survey, which Community Builders also fielded. The 2021 survey was completed by 18 non-profits, exclusively in High Point. The two surveys are not a 1-to-1 comparison but two moments in time for two different population sets, but they both show how non-profits in the county responded to the same questions.
