POSTPONED: Transformational DEI Certificate Program: Session 1 - DEI Foundation

Friday, March 20, 2020 from 9:00 AM - 1:00 PM

This event is being rescheduled to a later date. We’ve decided to follow the Governor’s recommendation and apologize for any disruption it causes. 

The Greater Boston Chamber of Commerce and Diversity@Workplace Consulting Group are proud to announce a new partnership that will benefit professionals looking for more fluency and training in Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion as well as actionable tools and techniques to bring back to their workplaces in an exciting new certificate program.

Overview of the Transformational DEI Certificate

Fluency in diversity, equity, and inclusion in the workplace is critical for business success in our increasingly complex and networked worlds. In a three-part leadership development series, offered in partnership with Diversity@Workplace Consulting Group, participants at any level of their organization will be equipped with actionable tools and techniques to bring back to their workplaces. 

The three workshops will build in complexity, starting with foundational understanding, building to diversity, equity, and inclusion strategy for businesses, and concluding with training on the nuanced aspects of DEI including unconscious bias and microaggressions. We encourage more than one person per organization to participate to help increase organizational comfort with and adoption of learnings. A digital certificate will be awarded upon completion of all three sessions.

About this Session

DEI Foundation: This workshop will provide you with a solid diversity, equity and inclusion training base to build upon. At the end of the day, each attendee will walk away with an understanding of up-to-date terminology and concepts as well as effective actions that can be implemented immediately to positively impact their organization’s inclusion practices. This session is appropriate for those new to the workforce, seasoned executives, and everyone in between.
