Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Practitioner


Course Number: DEI-102

Duration: 1 day (6.5 hours)

Format: Live, hands-on

DEI Practitioner Overview

Learning DEI fundamentals is just the first step.  Introducing organization-wide diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) values and practices requires a comprehensive, thoughtful, and skilled process. The next course in the series, DEI Practitioner, teaches participants how to drive a DEI Initiative for their own organization.

A successful strategic approach is built upon a critical and delicate balance. A short- and long-term strategic model must be rooted in needs assessment, research, core values, and collective vision. It must also be a practical, feasible, dynamic plan that considers the culture, nuances, resources, and timeframe of the organization.
