DFW companies lagging in diversity, equity, inclusion disclosures, data shows – Dallas Business Journal – Dallas Business Journal






North Texas-based companies are falling behind in terms of diversity, equity and inclusion disclosures, study finds.  
Nonprofit As You Sow partnered with consulting firm White Stop Capital to analyze the sustainability reports and websites of various public companies to determine current DEI policies and procedures. Corporate disclosures of workforce composition, pay equity, promotion rates, recruitment rates, retention rates and quantifiable DEI goals contributed to an organization’s overall score.  
Key inclusion data, promotion rates, recruitment rates and retention rates represented 60% of a company’s score. Workforce composition made up 25% of the score. A business’ pay equity data contributed 5%, while explicit DEI goals made up 10% of the overall score.  
Across the nation, the report found that 81% of S&P 100 companies already publish or have committed to publishing their consolidated EEO-1 forms, but in August 2020, only 20% of the S&P 100 companies did so. More than half the Russell 1000 companies, 66%, publicized gender and racial demographic data on their workforce in some way and 15% have disclosed quantifiable DEI goals.  
CVS Health, General Motors, Illumina, McDonald’s and Microsoft ranked in the top five for DEI disclosures. GameStop, Dish Network, Doordash and Align were listed in the bottom 10.  
AT&T had the highest overall score for North Texas-headquartered companies, scoring 33 on a scale of 100. GameStop, Sabre Corp, D.R Horton Inc, Builders FirstSource, Eagles Materials Inc, Jack Henry & Associates Inc. and Six Flags had the lowest DFW-based business disclosure scores with 0. Only eight companies had an overall score at or above 10, while 26 had a score below 10.  
The following DFW-based companies were listed in the report:
