Most big companies now say that improving racial and ethnic diversity of their workforces is an important goal, particularly after a summer of protests highlighting patterns of systemic racism. Very few of them provide enough information to track their progress.

Among companies in the Russell 1000 index, 72 percent don’t disclose any racial or ethnic information about their employees, according to the preliminary results of an analysis of company disclosures by Just Capital, a nonprofit that measures corporate stakeholder performance and pushes for more gender and racial transparency at companies. Thirty nine percent disclose the gender identity of their employees.

In a time of both misinformation and too much information, quality journalism is more crucial than ever.
