The AGI Maturity Model includes five different levels. Each level builds from the proviso one as follows:
Level 1: Risk Mitigation and Compliance
In this level, an organization’s practices and policies are focused primarily to ensure compliance of local laws and regulations
Level 2: Listen and Respond
Getting to the second level means that practices and policies are primarily reactive in responding to employee concerns
Level 3: Strategically Focus and Commit
Our third level equates to organizational leaders supporting the business case for diversity and committed to creating an inclusive culture
Level 4: Integrated and Accountable
Advancing to level four implies that a company’s diversity and inclusion goals are integrated into business strategy, and metrics are published for executive oversight and accountability
Level 5: Societal Impact and Equity Advancement
This level recognizes the potential of our global reach and impact through shared commitment and measurement
The model builds on established DEI maturity models that many use from Deloitte, Korn Ferry, and Josh Bersin. It synthesizes our findings from the Inclusion Index and aligns with the Alliance for Global Inclusion objectives. The introduction of the fifth level underscores the potential of our collective impact.
The Alliance Maturity model also acknowledges the systems-level changes we all own—from the CEO and executive leadership team to middle managers to every employee in any organization. When we collectively work at Level 5, we can truly move the needle at industry and global levels.
The diagram below shows the five different levels of the AGI Maturity Model to help organizations measure their progress through their transformation with the Alliance.
The Alliance for Global Inclusion is positioned between Levels 3 and 4. An individual's journey travels typically from Level 1 through Level 5. A collaborative workstream of the Alliance travels from Level 3 to Level 5. A collective impact with global reach is acquired through Level 4 to Level 5.
