There is a misconception that diversity is irrelevant to understanding the workplace in other parts of the world, particularly in Asia. In other words, countries in Asia, like the Philippines, are homogenous. Today, western countries and other developed regions are not the only places where the workforce is becoming more diversified. Hence, this study aims to make a unique contribution to the diverse literature in the country by examining the relationships between diversity, inclusion, and organizational climate in the context of a perceived homogeneous culture. The influence of demographic characteristics like age, gender, tenure, and position was also considered in the study. Using a sample of 40 Filipino employees in a higher education institution in Cebu City, the results show average employee perceptions about diversity, inclusion, and organizational climate. The perception of diversity was positively linked to inclusion and the organizational climate. However, perceptions of inclusion and organizational climate were not statistically meaningful. On the other hand, gender, tenure, and position were closely linked to employee’s perceptions of the organizational climate. Specifically, gender-diverse employees, new employees, and those in teaching positions have a more positive perception of the organizational climate. Therefore, assessing the organizational climate is highly relevant in promoting and improving inclusion and diversity in the workplace.
