Your goal as an educational institution leader is to bring forward the highest potential in each student and leave none behind. Organizational misalignment, poor communications, inconsistencies or misunderstood expectations in your sensitive environment of tighter budgets, reduced staff and limited resources magnifies your challenges exponentially.
Infinity Systems works with K-12 school districts to help improve student retention, student hopefulness, and student engagement, through Orgametrics and Equimetrics.
Through Orgametrics and Equimetrics, Infinity Systems can help universities, community colleges, trade schools and more, become more student-focused and improve student engagement, student retention, and student hopefulness.
Equimetrics strives to measure and improve diversity, equity, and inclusion (DE&I) culture within the schools. A stronger DE&I culture leads to more students feeling engaged, included, and represented.
Orgametrics strives to measure how aligned a school is with its stated mission and values, and helps find areas of improvement. In an educational setting where the mission and values are clear, leadership is viewed positively and students are happier.
View some of our videos that include information about Orgametrics, interviews with team members, and testimonials from districts that have benefitted from partnering with Infinity Systems to improve their DE&I culture and commitment to their school’s overall mission.

“MVWSD, like all school districts, is charged with not only providing a high-quality education, but also addressing various societal issues that impact the social wellbeing of our students. As a school district that is a minority majority district, with varying extreme levels of family affluence, it is important that we work to create a welcoming environment for all.
Our equity work, which is led by our Board of Trustees and our Strategic plan, is an ambitious approach to harnessing the power of organizational alignment, diversity and engagement. It is more than just having a Director of Equity, monthly calendars, inclusionary policies and lessons about the power of others. It is about challenging our current practices, ethos, and organizational structure to enact societal change.
To reach these heights, MVWSD is utilizing the Equimetrics survey to gain a full understanding of where our strengths and opportunities for growth are. This data, which was collected through a survey, has enabled us to see insights into how we communicate, engage and collaborate with our staff. It, the survey data, serves as a beacon of light that affords me the opportunity to be a purveyor of truth.
The work of a Superintendent has changed. It is harder now than it was when I first started this role almost a decade ago. While we have always had to focus on student achievement, achievement gaps, buildings and finance, we are now forced to use our platform to address the needs of the disenfranchised. We can’t afford to “make good trouble” with only supposition, instead we need data, hard facts and faith.
If we are going to continue down this road, then we need to be armed with the right tools to get the job done. The data contained in this survey is affirmation that the Board and I are headed in the right direction. It also suggests that we have more work ahead of us. Work that my Board and I are looking forward to. Ultimately, we believe that this is not only the right fight, but also right time.“

“As leaders, it is often difficult to discern if our vision for the organization is being absorbed and implemented with the same vigor among all employees. As Superintendent for Oakland Unified, it is our goal that all employees of the district adopt and actively work to implement the vision for our organization so that students are prepared for college, career and community success.
In an effort to strive for that mission and vision alignment among all our staff, we understand that we can utilize many tools and methods available in order to facilitate the important dialogue necessary to make these changes. One method that I highly recommend is utilizing the Orgametrics assessment tool. This tool allows an organization to ascertain if their mission and vision is understood and shared by the entire team, from the key leadership team down to the first-line employee. In addition, a leader can utilize the results from the Orgametrics survey as a baseline toward building a healthy organizational environment. Moreover, with the breadth of data gathered from the Orgametrics survey results, it can be used to facilitate dialogue among school leadership and to inform district-wide strategic initiatives. Some other potential benefits from using the Orgametrics process include, but are not limited to, improving organizational enthusiasm, educational outcomes, and parent/community interactions.
Developing an organizational culture is challenging but extremely important to maintain and ensure the health of your organization. The Orgametrics team will be there every step of the way to facilitate the continuous improvement process for your organization with their team of experts. I encourage any organization which is considering using the Orgametrics tool to employ their services without reservation, as you embark upon your alignment journey. “

“I serve as Normandale Community College’s Director of Equity and Inclusion (CDO). In Spring 2021, I had the pleasure of meeting Del Johnson and the Infinity Systems team to determine if Equimetrics would be an assessment tool that we could use at the college. I was seeking a quantitative assessment tool that could help the college measure our progress on one of our three main strategic goals: Support and sustain a pervasive institutional culture that is culturally competent and service oriented.
After meeting with Del, I could see that Equimetrics would be able to provide necessary analytical insights. It was also important to us that Infinity Systems is a locally and minority owned business. Del was very patient with our process in terms of meeting with various stakeholders who needed to be briefed on the instrument and its value in advancing the college’s efforts towards that third strategic goal. Of note, we used this assessment only with college employees as its design is specifically geared towards an organization’s employees.
Equimetrics agreed to use our preferred demographic questions (i.e. how we wanted to ask participants to disclose their race/ethnicity, gender identity, care-giving role, etc.). They also added four additional questions to the assessment that we designed. Equimetrics handled all data collection and analysis, in compliance with college and Minnesota State policies (after a review from our IT division). They provided us the link to take the assessment as well as communications materials we could use as we recruited employees to take the survey. Of note, the process moved efficiently and timely. We negotiated the contract in September/October, administered the survey in November, and received the reports in December.
We received numerous insightful reports. The primary two were a “snapshot” and a “summary” report. The former breaks down our scores in a two-page document that is clear and simple to understand. The latter dives into more details with ample use of visuals to keep the results accessible to non-data-oriented employees.
We appreciated that the entire Equimetrics team presented the results for us. At our request, they also provided several additional reports allowing us to drill down into the results for each of the demographic categories (college division, union, age, race/ethnicity, gender identity, sexual orientation, etc.).
In terms of actionable findings, we found one particular cultural community was having a more adverse experience of the college compared to their peers. This has allowed us to begin to design specific interventions. We found that employees who had been with the
college less than 1-year were similar. We also found variances within the LGBTQ community. All of this was immediately actionable.
We are planning to use the assessment again to measure our progress on initiatives/policies that we will create to address key findings. I fully recommend Infinity Systems and Equimetrics. I am happy to speak further about our experiences.”
