Abstract

Using a pretest-posttest research paradigm, we administered the Reaction-To-Diversity Inventory to students enrolled in a workplace diversity course at a regional Midwestern university. Our results show that the diversity experience produced an increase in the number of positive and negative perceptions students associated with workplace diversity. Gender also played a significant role in determining diversity perceptions. We discuss the implications of our findings for the design, implementation, and evaluation of diversity learning experiences in academic and corporate settings.
