I think it [DiversiScan™] is a fabulous tool, elegantly simple, and I mean that in the best sense. I once heard Hersey (Hersey and Blanchard) say that if a model is not simpler than reality, it is of no use. I would say the same for any tool / method such as your assessment. It gives people a way to get their arms around a very complex issue in a real, practical way that helps them prioritize and figure out where to begin their change efforts.

There are many distinct skills and areas of expertise that contribute to diversity competency - your ability to value and leverage diversity. This 65-item Assessment Instrument will allow you to consider your level of competency in seven skill areas.
The Diversity Competencies Assessment™ serves as:
A self-assessment to determine strengths and areas on which to focus more attention
An action plan for on-going learning and practice
A general framework for learning about diversity-related skills, behaviors and competencies
This self-scoring instrument can be implemented with leaders and employees at all levels as a stand-alone intervention with individuals or groups; a skills-based module in your existing diversity education efforts; or as a framework for subsequent skill-building training.
