Focusing on diversity, equity, or inclusion (DEI) in an organization is essential in today’s workplace. It involves areas such as cultural competencies, emotional intelligence, and understanding and accepting differences. For many organizations, DEI can seem tough to measure, as it is typically related to intangible benefits. When aligned with company goals, DEI’s value can go beyond morale and a sense of psychological safety and can have quantifiable gains for an organization and its people. This certificate program will prepare participants with the knowledge to understand diversity and its impact on an organization’s bottom line.


After completing this program, participants will have the ability to:

1. Define diversity, equity, and inclusion and understand the differences.

2. Identify biases, personal filters, and intersectionality.

3. Conduct a comprehensive diversity audit and needs analysis.

4. Recognize the six areas of cultural competency.

5. Determine different methods to measure the impact and show the value of a diversity intervention.

6. Align diversity interventions with organizational goals.

Pre-work:  Implicit Bias Test
