The Cultural Diversity and Awareness Profile provides a structured framework to help determine how much awareness and commitment exists towards the diversity of individuals and different “cultures” or backgrounds that exist in their organization. This is done from the individual’s views about their own level of diversity awareness and commitment, and from their perspective on how much diversity awareness and commitment is shown by the organization as a whole.
As cultural diversity is a multi-faceted complex area, this instrument breaks the subject down into six sub-categories. Individuals completing this instrument will score in all six sub-categories and will be able to compare their scores with relative best practice.
These Diversity sub-categories are:
Awareness and Climate
Degree of Empathy
Levels of Inclusion
Adaptation and Change
Tolerance and Understanding
Persistence and Commitment
