Organizations that embrace and prioritize diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) not only win the competition for talent, but they also top the charts for profitability and growth. Creating a culture where DEI is woven into the fabric of daily worklife is the responsibility of everyone in the organization, not just the human resources team. The DEI certificate program uses a thought-provoking approach to help participants gain insights into their own perceptions and understand their role in helping to foster a more diverse, inclusive, and equitable culture in their organizations and their communities. The program provides valuable knowledge, skills, and how-to ideas which are directly applicable to your organization and community’s needs.
