This study investigates the potential of the motivational climate to influence diversity promise fulfillment and employee outcomes. Diversity promise fulfillment is the achievement of a unique psychological contract between the employees and the employer and encompasses the perceptions of to which degree diversity and inclusion is achieved and valued in the organization. Based on a two-wave survey of 208 employees within the European context, our results show that minorities and the majority differ in expectations of diversity management, which creates implications as well as opportunities for the organization. Furthermore, our analysis confirms the paramount importance of fulfilling diversity promises so that both the organization and its employees can benefit from higher affective commitment. We did not find evidence of a moderating role by either mastery or performance climate in the relationship between diversity promise fulfillment and employee outcomes. However, our post-hoc analysis showed some interesting results in terms of beneficial outcomes of a mastery climate. This is elaborated in more detail in the discussion part, followed by avenues for future research and practical implications.
