Although research on the diversity climate of organizations is said to be imperative for researchers and practitioners, parsimonious attempt has been made to develop its measurement items. This paper describes the development of diversity openness climate organizational measures (DOCOM). The development process involved multi-faceted input of 104 diversity stakeholders across 3 Australian states, across five industries including both private and public sectors. Final results of the Q-sort methodology produced a stable two-factor structure comprised of 21 items. Factor 1 reflected the "diversity open situation of the organization" and Factor 2 reflected "on-going recognition and support for minority members". Construct validity study included data from 15 multinational organizations. Overall, results suggest that the diversity openness climate of organizational measures (DOCOM) is a valid measure that should prove useful in the field of workforce diversity.
