Intercultural Development Inventory®

Therese Heeg is a certified IDI® partner. The Intercultural Development Inventory® is the premier cross-cultural assessment of intercultural competence that is used by thousands of individuals and organizations throughout the world to build intercultural competence to achieve international and domestic diversity and inclusion goals and outcomes.

LifeWorks uses the Intercultural Development Inventory (IDI) to help leaders see where they are on the continuum from monocultural to intercultural.

Our team of qualified administrators for the IDI has found that the IDI, along with brief coaching, provides leaders the space and support to gain insights into their deeper selves so they can show up fully to create an environment where everyone thrives in their multiple identities.

The IDI helps create empathy for ourselves and others while also acknowledging each other’s unique history.

Why Use the IDI?

In this video, Verna Myers, shares how we all have biases and helps us think about how to move beyond them:

Novelist Chimamanda Adichie’s “The Danger of a Single Story” TED Talk in which she tells the story of how she found her authentic cultural voice — and warns that if we hear only a single story about another person or country, we risk a critical misunderstanding:

“Inclusion Stats with I” is a discussion around the importance of a positive, inclusive work environment. Starring a group of Accenture employees from diverse backgrounds, this video demonstrates that bias can appear in both expected and unexpected ways – and reminds us that each one of us has the power to make a difference. Be the one. Join the conversation.

LifeWorks stands with all of those working toward racial justice and equity.

We vow to listen and learn in order to be agents of change both through the work we do and how we live.

We stand in solidarity with the BIPOC communities in Milwaukee and across the country.
