The exit interview and survey are means for identifying organizational problems, including diversity issues, through individuals separating from the organization, who are in a unique position to supply candid feedback. A review of the civilian literature revealed several problems with the exit interview and survey but also various ways of dealing with these problems. A review of the military literature showed that each military Service has undertaken a recent exit survey effort with varying results. Based upon the civilian and military literature, a diversity exit survey and interview were constructed, which addressed diversity problems in military units as well as organizational issues important to diversity groups. Recommendations for implementing the exit interview and survey end the report.
