The Equity Lens Map (ELM) is a survey tool for educational organizations to identify where team members are on their journey to leading equity in their organization. The ELM is not an employee climate survey. It is not about organizational needs or attitudes towards the organization (though its data can have implications for both). It is aimed at the person-level and designed to help organizations build effective, differentiated talent practices for team members at every level of the organization to advance diversity, equity and inclusion. This paper reports on the psychometric development and validation of the survey. The goal is to describe the frameworks used to develop the tool, its history of development and statistically evaluate how well the tool does its job. Items were tested with 1,075 employees of 30 non-profit organizations (most in the education sector). This paper was accepted through peer-review for presentation at the American Education Research Association (AERA) 2023 conference.
