DEIB Certification Track
An institution is only as good as its culture and building that culture is every employee, manager, and leader’s responsibility. The management of diversity and inclusion has evolved from a focus on compliance to a strategic-level effort with a demonstrated positive contribution to an organization's performance. In addition, diversity and inclusion are much more than a legal or moral requirement; they’re a competitive advantage.
This course will develop the skills needed to become a more impactful employee, manager, or leader. During the course, participants will analyze interventions surrounding inclusive leadership, unconscious bias, and specific diversity and inclusion strategies. In addition, participants will enhance their inclusive communication skills and approach by understanding assumptions and communicating across differences. The DEIB Certification is designed to provide leaders with the concrete tools needed to create, develop, and foster inclusive teams and inclusive workplaces.
