What You Will Learn!

  • Define diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging
  • Understand the business case for creating a diverse, equitable, and inclusive workplace

If you are just beginning to explore the diversity, equity and inclusion space and are interested in sharpening your understanding of the practice, then we’ve designed a course just for you. Over the last few decades, diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) has become a priority for organizations. From the annual release of diversity reports to the creation of executive positions to lead these efforts, organizations have undertaken a number of actions to bolster their profiles in this area. But how do you help start these efforts in your organization, especially if you are an individual contributor?

If you are looking to start grassroots diversity and inclusion initiatives in your organization, or you are just curious about some of the best strategies for getting started, then the material we’ve assembled for you is the perfect place to start. You do not need to be an expert to begin exploring some of the foundational elements of DEI. In this course, we’ll cover:

  • Building a new vocabulary around diversity, equity, and inclusion

  • Quantifying the impact of DEI on the business

  • Exploring social identity and its impact on our interactions

  • Heightening awareness of blindspots and biases

  • Listening actively and empathetically

  • Launching diversity task forces and committees

  • Establishing employee resource groups

  • Designing brave learning spaces

In my work as a DEI strategist and consultant, I have seen first-hand the impact that the strategies I present in this course can have on a company’s culture of inclusion and belonging. This work can be challenging, but the outcome is incredibly rewarding. Let’s get started today!

Who Should Attend!

  • Individual contributors and managers interested in getting diversity initiatives started in their organization
  • Aspiring diversity, equity, and inclusion practitioners
  • People curious to find out some simple first steps to building a DEI function
