Course Overview

Most DEI training programs fail to reach their long-term goals. Their message and insights, according to a Harvard Business Review article, are lost after just a few days. Emphasizing employment law and organizational policy is certainly important but represent only a few pieces of a very complex puzzle. To make real process both the laws and policies need to be addressed but long-term results depend upon those who manage the DEI process on a daily basis. So, the focus needs be a balance between law, organizational policy, and leadership. This course was developed to bridge this gap. Its objective is long- term change. Further, it is a course that that focuses on understanding the basic issues in Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion while encouraging a proactive leadership-driven approach to making the workplace equitable and fair.
