Intercultural Development Inventory Assessment

What is the Intercultural Development Inventory?

The Intercultural Development Inventory® (IDI®), developed by Dr. Mitchell Hammer, assesses intercultural competence — the capability to shift cultural perspective and appropriately adapt behavior to cultural differences and commonalities. Seward Community Co-op, Willy Street Co-op, and others have used the assessment for building their cultural development.

How it works?

Prior to attending the conference, you will need to complete the 50-item questionnaire available online. The questionnaire takes roughly 15–20 minutes to complete. We ask that you finish the assessment by May 25th, 2018.

During registration for the IDI, you will select one of the 30 minute slots to meet with either LaDonna Sanders-Redmond or Elizabeth Liddiard Wozniak, both Qualified IDI Administrators, to receive confidential feedback on your Individual Profile. There will be times available on Thursday afternoon during the tours or Friday afternoon during breakout sessions.  In your meeting, you will receive an in-depth graphic profile of your individual level of intercultural competence along with a detailed textual report. The IDI Individual Profile Report provides valuable information about your own orientations toward cultural difference and commonality.

The IDI does not “label” you. It simply tells you how you are currently approaching cultural differences and commonalities and gives you a direction in which to develop your intercultural competence.

Accompanying your IDI profile report is a customized, IDI Intercultural Development Plan® (IDP®).  This is a comprehensive map of how you can increase your intercultural competence based on your own, unique, IDI Profile.

Cost: $25 

Registration is limited to 24 people.
