CITC facilitators are also certified in additional inventories to help clients understand their mindsets and needs as it relates to customized interventions and trainings: 


The Intercultural Development Inventory, or IDI, is the assessment platform from which IDI Guided Development is undertaken to build intercultural competence and achieve educational and organizational goals.


Engaging the IDI process allows individuals to understand their mindsets as it relates to their levels of comfort with interacting across cultural differences. Should an individual (or group) desire, they can increase their levels of Cultural Intelligence (CI) to help them understand, and more effectively interact, across cultures. They do so by understanding where they are on the Intercultural Development Continuum (IDC) and seeking to move toward the next orientation/mindset. Your group and individual results remain confidential and will not be shared.


When organizations partner with CITC over time (at least 12 months), we encourage participants to take the IDI assessment before we begin programming, and then again toward the end of our contract. Viewing the pre/post results of the group and individual assessments allows us to measure the efficacy of our program. Coupled with DEIB Culture Surveys and interviews, focus groups, and/or town halls, the IDI assists people in understanding where they truly are in the DEIB process, and it helps us bring holistic change to organizations.

Most critically, CITC IDI facilitators factor in a person's personal and social identities and lived experiences when debriefing group and individual results. We do this with an empathetic lens, recognizing that who we are and how we relate across cultural differences can be dependent on our life's circumstances and how we have interacted in private and professional spaces.
