Diversity Assessment

Assess diversity on your team, division, and/or agency.

  • In what areas could diversity be improved?
  • If you work for a tribal child welfare agency, how do you view diversity?

Look at the census data for the area your program serves to assess the percentage of various racial and ethnic groups in the general population. Compare with the diversity of your agency staff and management team.

  • Which groups have greater access to power and decision making?
  • What could you do in your role to build greater diversity in decision making?

Seek out a manager of a program or unit who has been successful in attracting diverse staff. Find out what that person did that worked.
