Diversity, equity, and inclusion programs have gone too long without applying a developmental approach. That is exactly why the right thing to do is usually the first thing to go when resources get low. When you know better; you do better. Understanding how people in organizations are responding to our current racial and political unrest is imperative to successful DEI initiatives. Using the Intercultural Developmental Continuum (IDC) as the approach and the Intercultural Development Inventory (IDI) as the psychometric, valid, and reliable assessment tool, institutions can learn how to attract, recruit, support, and retain their traditionally marginalized clients, staff, families, and educators.
Participants will leave this workshop with a higher level of understanding about the Intercultural Development Continuum; a clear description of what stage their institution may be in; and a developmentally appropriate prescription for the key skills needed to engage, support, and challenge the status quo in order to promote institutional change.
