Please note: This session is intended for participants of Rackham's Professional Development DEI Certificate Program.
The Intercultural Development Inventory (IDI) is used in multiple ways in the Rackham PD DEI Certificate. Participants complete the IDI at the beginning and end of the certificate as an evaluation tool for the program. Once the IDI is completed for the first time, participants can join one of a number of group results sessions. This session focuses on the theoretical foundations of the IDI, gives a group result of PD DEI Certificate participants, and provides tools to better understand the continuum of mindsets individuals utilize as their strategy for navigating across difference.
Group session participants will leave with a fundamental understanding of multiple approaches to navigating across difference and will leave with resources they can use in their organizations, groups, or affiliations. This session also serves as the initial step before an individual results session where you receive your personal IDI result and an accompanying intercultural development plan to help you pursue your intercultural goals.
This workshop is designed for graduate students and postdoctoral fellows. Space is limited. For faculty and staff, please contact RackhamEvents@umich.edu to see if we can accommodate your attendance.
