  • Course Code: 62965

Build skills to lead and foster diversity and inclusion in your organization

Leaders at all levels must be active and qualified advocates of diversity and inclusion (D&I) to ensure it's part of the organization’s culture and business strategy. This unique 3-day certificate program goes beyond standard D&I courses, and helps you develop skills to become a champion of diversity and a leader of inclusive teams. You’ll learn to recognize the uniqueness and multidimensional aspects of individual identity, understand biases on a deeper level, and explore behaviors that promote trust. You will also gain knowledge and tools to help you foster a thriving culture that promotes these values. Apply what you learn in a specially designed, interactive capstone project.
