Course Info

Fostering a diverse, equitable, and inclusive workforce and workplace involves awareness of and appreciation for different perspectives, backgrounds, customs, abilities, and behavior norms. Talent development professionals are in a unique position to ensure that every employee in their organization is respected and engaged and that their organization realizes the significant benefits of an inclusive approach. Throughout this course, you will explore key themes and concepts encompassing many facets of diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) and discover the tools necessary to support DEI through your role as a talent development practitioner. In alignment with the Talent Development Capability Model, you will examine your organizational impact from three unique perspectives—personal, professional, and organizational—and identify strategies to expand your mindset, practices, and influence. Starting with the personal perspective, this certificate program will provide you an opportunity to evaluate your self-awareness and develop cultural humility. The program will draw on the learners’ real-world experiences and will invite authentic discussions in a way that recognizes that everyone is at a different place in their DEI journey. Moving to the professional realm, we’ll explore how you can incorporate DEI into your daily work as a TD practitioner, regardless of your role. Lastly, you will discover how to drive and influence organizational impact by leveraging DEI strategies to recruit, grow, retain, and optimize your talent. By the end of this program, you will have developed a business case and strategic approach for a DEI initiative that you can take back to implement in your organization.
