Take the Workplace Inclusion Test

Often, when we speak of diversity and inclusion, employees and leaders alike have a difficult time visualizing what it looks like in real life. We are often asked, “What is inclusion and what does it look like in practice”. We have developed a simple survey to get you thinking about where your organizations stands. Remember that this survey provides a quick introduction to measures that you should be thinking about as you think about inclusion in your organization. How inclusive is your workplace? Take the Workplace Inclusiveness Gauge and record your score!

What Your Score Means

I scored between 0-5: My organization needs support

If you scored between 0-5, drop your pen or pencil and give Mosaic Cross-Cultural Solutions (1800-674-8422) a call immediately! Just kidding. If you scored in the 0-5 range, it is clear that your organization requires additional support to achieve your diversity and inclusion goals.

Diversity and inclusion is a group effort that requires the support of your senior leadership team. This is true even if you are tasked with leading such initiatives for your organization. Don’t panic. I, or another D&I professional, would be happy to support you. I would be happy to provide you with a free, one hour, consultation to get the ball rolling. Sign up on my website at www.crossculturalmosaic.com. I am looking forward to hearing from you.

I scored between 6-10: My organization is on the right track

If you scored between 6-10, your organization in on the right track, but there is still room for improvement.

Achieving a workplace that is both diverse and inclusive requires strategy, planning, reviewing and re-tweaking of your organization’s goals. This is best achieved with the support of both your leaders and your peers. Keep track of leaders who are supportive of D&I initiatives and seek them out when you require support. Also, keep track of colleagues who are eager to assist with the overall inclusion strategy such that your network of support is both vertical and horizontal.

I scored between 11-15: My organization is doing well!

Bravo! Your organization is well on its way to being an inclusive workplace. You should be congratulated on a job well done. Pay attention to those items that you did not score well on. Make these items your priority and part of a D&I strategic plan that will lead your organization to even greater levels of inclusion over the next three to five years. An inclusive workplace will pay dividends in increased productivity and satisfaction amongst your staff and the clients that you serve.

Dr. Anita Jack-Davies, Program Founder

As a Workplace Diversity Consultant I often work with clients in charge of DEI (diversity, equity & inclusion). I was moved to develop the Badges2Bridges program after working with Alan. Alan was a new Staff Sergeant in charge of a new DEI unit at his police service. When we first met to talk about how I might support his work, I could tell that he was not only nervous about his new role, but unsure about this new world of cross-cultural understanding that I was asking him to know. Keeping Alan in mind, I set out to create a program that he, and other officers like him, could use as a resource as they develop and implement DEI measures for their organizations. Alan was trained as a police officer. The DEI sector was new to him. He wanted to do well, even though he knew that he was embarking on training in a new sphere that took him out of his comfort zone. Alan and I worked together on a few DEI projects over a two year timeframe. With each project, I learned from Alan in the same way that he learned from me. I watched as his confidence and commitment to DEI measures increased. Eventually, Alan was promoted because it was clear that his commitment to DEI issues extended far beyond his role. Looking back on his growth, I realized that other officers and leaders also need support in their DEI efforts. It is my hope that they will turn to Badges2Bridges as a training resource that will supplement what they already receive at the police college and in their annual training.
