Cultural brokering is the act of facilitating cross-cultural interactions among others. In a three study, mixed-methods project, we develop a phenomena-driven scale to measure cultural brokering. Multicultural individuals - people who identify with more than one culture - are found to broker across cultures more frequently than monoculturals, who identify with one culture. In addition, we find that brokering varies depending on the cultural diversity of the organization. Multicultural individuals only engage in significantly more brokering behavior than monocultural individuals when working in organizations with low levels of cultural diversity, indicating these organizations may gain the most from employing multicultural individuals.
