We are a feedback-driven organization
we pride ourselves in collecting feedback and tracking metrics. The overall 2023 Diversity University evaluation was completed by over 200 participants!
In KNOWLEDGE, SKILL, and COMFORT
At the culmination of the week-long versions of Diversity University, participants were asked to rank their KNOWLEDGE, SKILL, and COMFORT before the week and how they ranked that knowledge at the end of the week. They were asked to use a scale of 1 to 5, where 1 is clueless and 5 is fully enlightened.
The increase in KNOWLEDGE, SKILL, and COMFORT reported by the participants was 40% or more in all categories except for comfort in negotiating a culturally sensitive plan (educational, legal, or medical), and comfort in addressing cross-cultural conflicts in communication. The increase in comfort in both of those areas was 39%.
