In an increasingly diverse denomination and world MEA has made a commitment to working towards intercultural competency. One way that MEA works towards this goal is by administering the Intercultural Development Inventory® (IDI®). IDI assesses intercultural competence—the capability to shift cultural perspective and appropriately adapt behavior to cultural differences and commonalities.
Carlos Romero, MEA executive director is a certified administrator of the IDI. A significant portion of Romero's work is administering this assessment and training to boards and for leadership development workshops. It is MEA’s goal that by the end of 2016 all Mennonite college, university and seminary boards will have taken this training.
