Our increasingly diverse society is reflected in growing workforce diversity. Leading organizations acknowledge that working successfully with others who don't share the same background, beliefs or traditions is a top priority in the new workplace. Employees need help in assessing their behavior toward people who are different from themselves. And they must understand the benefits of changing negative attitudes and resistance into appreciation and cooperation.

Build a Bridge to Understanding

The Discovering Diversity Profile® is a confidential and effective way to help employees explore diversity issues in the following key areas:

  • Knowledge: discover what they actually know about differences as well as the source of that knowledge. Stereotypes and Information are measured here.

  • Understanding: explore their willingness to put themselves in a position to feel what others may be feeling. Awareness and Empathy are measured here.

  • Acceptance: examine their patience and regard for different beliefs and behaviors. Tolerance and Respect are measured here.

  • Behavior: assess how they act out their attitudes toward others, their flexibility and openness in dealing with others and their patterns of interaction. Self-awareness and Interpersonal Skills are measured here.
