Basic Intercultural Acuity
Instruction and activities focus on unique facets of human culture and how they present and are interpreted in the workplace. Participants identify their own cultural norms and contrast with those of others, with consideration of the precept of worldview.
Inclusivity: Core Elements of Proficiency
An organizational assessment followed by training that presents and analyzes the human identity spectrum, provides interactive instruction and dialog around bias and identity, and provides tools for impacting workplace dynamics in intentional ways.
Preparatory team building around shared language, definitions, and knowledge of equity and inclusion and the unique attributes and challenges of your market.
Systems of Power (Prerequisite training required)
Team-based exploration of how systems of power are designed, adapted, and perpetuated. Instruction focuses on how social and political structures award honor and privilege to some while systematically disadvantaging others. Histories of domination and oppression will be explained with insights into how they continue to operate.
Common Language: Modulating for Impact
Values-based interactive training that develops norms for workplace communication and increases awareness of barriers to organizational integrity and connectivity. Includes exploration of intent vs impact, ladder of inference, and reflective listening.
Intercultural Development Inventory®
The Intercultural Development Inventory® (“IDI”) assesses intercultural competence—the capability to shift cultural perspective and appropriately adapt behavior to cultural differences and commonalities. The assessment is delivered online and takes 30 to 45 minutes per individual to complete.
The IDI® is delivered and assessed by one of Diversity Council's Qualified Administrators with current credentials. Results can be delivered to individuals through a report generated from their personal responses. The IDI® process can also produce group, subgroup, and organizational intercultural competence reports.
Upon completion, these reports, along with interviews or focus groups, can be utilized to identify cross-cultural goals and challenges that translate into specific inclusion strategies, as well as building Individual Development Plans.
By completing your Individual Development Plan, you can:
Gain insights concerning intercultural challenges you are facing and identify intercultural competence development goals that are important for you,
Gain increased understanding of how your Developmental Orientation impacts how you perceive and respond to cultural differences and commonalities, and
Identify and engage in targeted, developmental efforts that increase your intercultural competence in bridging across diverse communities.
