The Racial Diversity Feedback Program (RDFP)
The Racial Diversity Feedback Programô (RDFP) is designed to assess the likelihood that a person will initiate a conversation with someone different from their racial background. The RDFP is a questionnaire that uses items and scales including: 1) the Organization Inventory; 2) the Personal Inventory; 3) the Implicit Association Test; 4) the Social Inventory; and 5) the Social Attitude Scale . The RDFP is a particularly useful tool because it provides individuals with feedback on ways to improve and enhance behavior and actions in racially diverse situations and encounters.
