Online Diversity & Inclusion Practitioner Program

Diversity & Inclusion has been on the priority lists of CEOS & CHROs for a long time and several efforts are being taken to make Diversity & Inclusion a part of the DNA of the organizations. What began with a focus on gender diversity has broadened to include a range of factors and the question is whether there has been any progress in the D&I journey of organizations because of the efforts so far. While we can say that there has been progress, we can see that organizations are still struggling across a spectrum of issues from increasing gender diversity to creating a culture of inclusion at work.

The Certified Diversity & Inclusion Practitioner program is focused on helping participants learn how to define Diversity & Inclusion, understand stereotypes, learn the four cornerstones of diversity, learn about behaviours that support and block D&I, learn about the pitfalls related to D&I, learn how to implement D&I Programs, link D&I efforts to the ROI of the organization and nurture the D&I culture of the organization.
