Acceptance of Diversity Profile

INSTRUCTIONS: Our workforce is getting increasingly diverse. People from different countries, languages, cultures and lifestyle values often can be found in the same work unit. Understanding and accepting this workforce diversity will contribute to higher productivity, better teamwork and increased job satisfaction.

This 40 item test (about 10 minutes) is designed to identify your attitudes towards diversity in the workforce. Using your mouse, click on the response that best describes you in the following statements. The answer options are as follows:

  • NV = Never applies to me
  • RA = Rarely applies to me
  • SM = Sometimes applies to me
  • OF = Often applies to me

We have also included 4 demographic questions for research purposes. We are interested in seeing whether gender, type of nurse, experience and work environment are related to acceptance of diversity scores. Remember that this is a totally anonymous test, and there are NO right or wrong answers, so please respond as accurately as possible.

Once you have completed all the test items, you will be able to see your four different diversity component scores - tolerance, respect, self-awareness and interpersonal skills.
