Most people don′t sit down at their desk on Monday morning, turn on their computer, and make a mental plan to discriminate, judge, or isolate their colleagues. Unfortunately, today′s diverse workplace is rampant with this kind of harmful behavior and it is not only resulting in hurt feelings, but it′s having a negative effect on performance, retention, corporate culture, and the bottom line. The Diversity Awareness Profile (DAP) is designed to increase employee awareness of this important issue so that they are able to identify, evaluate, and modify their own behavior. Based on solid, up–to–date research, the DAP addresses discrimination issues with various minority groups including older workers, women, persons with disabilities, African Americans, Native Americans, Hispanics, and Asian Americans.
The fully–revised second edition of this classic, best–selling assessment instrument will help training participants understand how their actions whether obvious or subtle affect a person of a different culture, gender, or ethnic background. It is designed to serve as both a quick, stand–alone intervention or part of a larger program on improving working relationships between employees. After completing the 24–item questionnaire participants are given the opportunity to reflect on their behavior and find the path toward respect for all people.
The Diversity Awareness Profile Facilitator′s Guide walks you through the process of preparing, administering, and debriefing the DAP. In addition, the guide offers key discussion questions and instructions on how to best help participants create individualized action plans.
