The Intercultural Development Inventory (IDI) is an assessment tool that measures intercultural competence – the ability to engage effectively and appropriately with people who are different than ourselves. The IDI uses a developmental approach, evaluating individuals, groups or organizations as they work toward intercultural competence. This tool can be used to evaluate programs, develop benchmarks, create program plans and provide coaching for leaders – fostering a deeper awareness about power and privilege in any cultural context.
With the additional training of 16 administrators across the denomination, Mennonite Church USA Executive Board staff and MEA are expanding access to the IDI to congregations, denominational agencies and boards, leadership teams and other Mennonite-related organizations. Qualified administrators are not only certified to administer the IDI, but also to provide feedback to individuals and organizations working to improve their intercultural competence.
