Jewish Organization Equality Index


The Jewish Organization Equality Index (JOEI) survey is an innovative, first-of-its-kind effort to analyze and rate U.S. Jewish non-profits on their policies, practices and programs as they are pertinent to lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) employees and members. The 18-month collaboration between the HRC Foundation and Jewish community organizations includes a survey to benchmark current practices, educational resources for improvement and a final report to highlight the advances made and the work still to be done. HRC's fair and achievable standards for inclusion are supported with informative resources, webinars, cutting-edge research and tools to help organizations along the way.
