Diversity Equity and Inclusion Certificate Program

July 6, 2021

Statistics on diversity in the workplace show that most organizations need to consider greater inclusivity to create a more diverse workforce. Executives know that a diverse workforce - including differing races, religions, ages, genders and sexual orientations, person with disabilities and more - provides greater depth in perspective and viewpoints for the organization. This online certificate program will emphasize essential business practices and initiatives designed to increase diversity among employees at all levels. It’s time to make meaningful strides towards building an organizational culture that enables all employees to bring their whole selves to work and to build a workplace where everyone feels seen, heard and supported. Our interactive, discussion-based program will teach participants how to identify skills and strategies to become more aware and inclusive, so that they may have a greater impact on the overall vision and day-to-day operations of their workplace. What Participants Will Learn • Gain a deeper understanding of how inclusion drives business performance • Explore diversity and inclusion best practices and strategies to build a more inclusive workplace • Gain insights for inclusive recruiting as well as engaging and retaining diverse talent • Empower your employees to listen and facilitate open and honest dialogues • Help your employees show up as their authentic self without fear so they can truly be successful • Go beyond just checking the box Who Should Attend While the certificate is well-suited for human resources professionals and C-suite leaders, this program is also designed for: • Business Unit Managers, General Managers, Regional Managers, Directors and other manager / leadership roles • Organization team leaders and individual leaders of all levels in the organization • Employees with a desire to positively lead their teams and organization to create and develop an accepting diverse, equitable and inclusive (DEI) workplace
