DEI Dimensions


DEI Indicators


Denominator has a global database with data and ratings on countries, industries and more than 3 million public and private companies. The database spans over 650+ unique DEI data variables .

Did you know that most World maps resemble the Mercantor projection which does not reflect the true size of countries.
This map is based on Neil Kaye’s mosaic approach, but there are other maps projections such as Gail-Peters and Winkel

Holistic approach to
Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

DEI covers multiple different dimensions.
Gender, Race, Ethnicity, Age, Engagement, Opportunity, Disability are some of the dimensions, but the list is much longer. As a consequence, a holistic approach is essential when discussing, measuring, analyzing, or assessing DEI.

Most DEI efforts only focus on a single or maybe two DEI dimensions. A single or narrow approach to DEI leads to lost opportunities and minimizes the return on DEI investments. Denominator is the only provider that takes a holistic approach in all efforts and work as the guardian of neutral influence between the DEI dimensions. DEI should not be a zero-sum game, but a win/win investment.

The comprehensive approach at Denominator entails that we measure and score on more DEI dimensions and sub-dimensions than any other company in the market. That allows us to assist our clients to manage risk, identify opportunities and create sustainable improvements.


Denominator has the most detailed and comprehensive Diversity, Equity & Inclusion ratings on the market. The sophisticated rating methodologies are built upon multiple international frameworks such as UN Global Compact’s SDG and World Economic Forum’s Gender Parity. The ratings have been made possible by the 650+ unique DEI indicators Denominator has available.
