The purpose of this research study is to identify the relationship between an organization’s aspiration for a culture of diversity and inclusion, its documents and policy, and employee experience. Through analyzing the documents and policies of a small nonprofit organization and comparing the results of an employee survey focused on questions related to the current culture of diversity and inclusion in the organization it is the intent to identify any gaps that exist between these components. Research has shown that organizations that have a successful culture of diversity and inclusion have better outcomes, including increased employee engagement, retention, and increased work performance, not only for the employee, but for the organization as well.
