Our increasingly diverse society is reflected in growing workforce diversity. Leading organizations acknowledge that working successfully with others who do not 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.
Designed to help individuals look honestly at themselves to identify attitudes and behavior that stands in the way of teamwork, the Discovering Diversity Profile provides a safe way to explore complex, powerful issues.
Build a Bridge to Understanding
The Discovering Diversity Profile is completely confidential, and an effective tool to help employees explore diversity in the following key areas:
Knowledge: discover what a person actually knows about differences by looking at stereotypes, as well as the source of that knowledge or information.
Understanding: decipher their level of awareness and explore their willingness to put themselves in a position to feel what others may be feeling.
Acceptance: tolerance examines their patience and regard for respecting different beliefs and behaviors.
Behavior: interpersonal skill assesses how they act out their attitudes toward others, their flexibility and openness in dealing with others and their self-awareness of patterns of interaction.
