The Intercultural Development Inventory® (“IDI”) assesses intercultural competence—the capability to shift cultural perspective and appropriately adapt behavior to cultural differences and commonalities.

The IDI® process involves completing the inventory and coaching with one of the Diversity Council's Qualified Administrators. Individuals receive a profile generated from their personal responses.

The IDI® process also produces group, subgroup, and organizational intercultural competence reports.  These reports help identify cross-cultural goals and challenges that translate into specific inclusion strategies.

By participating in the IDI® process, you will:

  • Gain insights into intercultural challenges and identify intercultural development goals that are unique to your needs 

  • Gain an understanding of how your workgroup and community environments are impacted by intercultural competence

  • Engage in targeted efforts to increase intercultural competence and allow bridging to diverse individuals and communities

IDI® has been rigorously tested and found to possess high cross-cultural validity and reliability. Diversity Council has used IDI® in its client work for more than 10 years.

Intercultural Development Inventory®

IDI® is used to initiate and facilitate a global, developmentally grounded conversation across diverse individuals and groups in order to increase people’s capacity to better understand culture and to develop culturally responsive and appropriate strategies for engaging cultural differences.
