2018 Inclusiveness IndexIssues of sexual violence against women, access to water, and the continuing refugee and migrant crises were among the most pressing challenges facing the world in 2018. The varied responses to these challenges by state bodies—both domestically and worldwide—contributed greatly to their inclusivity designations in our 2018 Inclusiveness Index, a report released annually that ranks nations and US states based on their levels of inclusion of marginalized or non-majority groups, based on race, gender, religion, disability, and LGBTQ status.
