QCIA: Quick Cultural Intelligence Assessment

The QCIA is a self-administered questionnaire that enables management to take a cross-section look into their current diversity and inclusion initiatives. Completing the QCIA allows an understanding of the scope and effort expended by “Leaders in Diversity” to move beyond anti-discriminatory compliance to improvements in short to medium term cash flow and longer term increases in competitiveness, profits and shareholder satisfaction.
