The Diversity Training Assessment helps employees learn how they respond to workforce diversity issues and where they need to develop increased understanding. It is the foundation on which effective communication, acceptance, customer service, and teamwork can be built.

After recording and tallying responses to the assessment, learners are guided through a confidential interpretation process that identifies their present attitudes about workforce diversity.
They quickly assess their level of comfort — or discomfort — with differences by using a simple feedback grid that corresponds to the four diversity areas.
Current feelings, opinions, knowledge, and skills are pinpointed. The impact of individual comfort level on workplace effectiveness is clarified, and specific suggestions for improving individual understanding of diverse groups are offered.
The Diversity Training Assessment helps individuals to...
Discover their personal comfort level with people who are different from themselves
Understand the impact of their behavior on others
Assess the accuracy of their knowledge about differences
Limit the influence of stereotypes
Transform knowledge into acceptance and empathy
