DIVERSITY SELF-ASSESSMENT

EXERCISE

  • 0 to 39 Points: UNAWARE

    • Unaware people don’t realize they exhibit biased behavior. They may offend others without being aware of it. They may accept stereotypes as facts. They may even unknowingly commit, illegal acts! An unaware person’s scores can fall in any category because an unaware person might answer “always” or “frequently” when in reality he or she simply does not comprehend biased behavior. Because unaware people “don’t know what they don’t know”, the only accurate indicator is feedback from others.

DIVERSITY SELF-ASSESSMENT

EXERCISE

  • 40-69 Points: TRADITIONAL

    • Are aware of their prejudices and that their behavior may offend some people. However, they will continue with derogatory jokes, inappropriate comments and actions as though the laws and our organizational values don’t apply to them. If you fall in this category, not only is it likely that your behavior is damaging to workplace productivity and helping to create a hostile workplace climate, but your behavior may have legal consequences as well. Examine the questions you scored lowest – you may want to create personal and professional goals to help you break these habits.

DIVERSITY SELF-ASSESSMENT

EXERCISE

  • 70-99 Points: NEUTRAL

    • People in this category are aware of biases in themselves and others.

    • They are working to overcome their own prejudices, but are reluctant to address inappropriate behavior by others.

    • They avoid risk by saying nothing and this is often perceived as agreement.

  • 100-129 Points: CHANGE AGENT

    • Are aware of biases in themselves and others and realize the negative impact that comes from acting on those biases.

    • Change agents are willing to take action when they encounter inappropriate words, behaviors, or attitudes.

    • They relate to people in a way that values diversity.

DIVERSITY SELF-ASSESSMENT

EXERCISE

  • 130-140 Points: REBEL

    • Are aware of prejudice and bias – sometimes to a fault. At times they may come across too strong and appear to be overreacting.

    • Rebels sometimes receive a reputation that causes people to discount their views, avoid them, or not take them seriously.

Each employee, at all levels within the organization, has an active role in implementing the NWS Diversity Management Initiative.

If diversity management is to be embraced, it must be integrated successfully into all facets of the organization's structure.
