Welcome to The Institute for Workplace Equality
The Institute for Workplace Equality (“The Institute”) is a national nonprofit employer association based in Washington, DC.  The Institute trains and educates federal contractors in understanding and complying with their affirmative action and equal employment opportunity obligations. Our programs also address related human resource management strategies to assist employers in creating and maintaining diverse organizations free from workplace bias.
PRNewswire: The Institute has created a new tool to address America’s Corporate Pay Gap. The tool, the Pay Equity Index (PEI), evaluates an organization’s pay equity practices beyond a traditional pay equity study or wage gap analysis. Click here to learn more about the PEI.
