TSM Equitable, Diverse, and Inclusive Workplaces Protocol

The purpose of this TSM protocol is to facilitate continual performance improvements towards workplaces that practice equity, diversity, and inclusion. This is to be achieved through engagement and through the development and implementation of associated strategies, commitments, programs, and objectives. While some companies may begin this journey by focusing on certain underrepresented groups, the ultimate aim is to create a workplace that is equitable and inclusive for everyone.

To assess performance and measure progress, the TSM Equitable, Diverse, and Inclusive Workplaces Protocol outlines criteria associated with three indicators:

  1. Leadership and strategy (to be measured at the corporate level)
  2. Advancing equity, diversity, and inclusion (to be measured at the facility level)
  3. Monitoring, performance, and reporting (to be measured at the facility level)

As with any performance assessment tool, professional judgment is required to assess alignment with each indicator and associated criteria. Application of this protocol will therefore require a level of expertise in auditing, systems assessment, related subject matter, and relevant regulatory regimes and requirements. This protocol is not a guarantee of the effectiveness of a company’s efforts to achieve equitable, diverse, and inclusive workplaces, but is intended to create the awareness, practice and corporate culture required for success. In collaboration with workers and relevant communities of interest, companies should adapt their application of this protocol to the legal, cultural, and social contexts in which they operate.
