The purpose of this study was to investigate the effect of value diversity on team identity and team conflict and to explore the moderating roles of inclusive climate in the relationship between value diversity and team identity and in the relationship between value diversity and team conflict. This study developed four hypotheses and tested them using regression and hierarchical regression analyses. The results showed that the positive relationship between value diversity and team identity and the negative relationship between value diversity and team conflict were statistically supported. And this study found that inclusive climate played moderating roles in the relationship between value diversity and team identity and in the relationship between value diversity and team conflict. Based on the findings of the study, this study presented managerial implications and suggestions for future studies.
