Transformational DEI Certificate Program: Session 2 - DEI Strategy

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

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 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 Strategy: This workshop takes DEI thinking to the next level. Attendees will walk away with a deeper understanding around diversity and inclusion strategy.  In this session we will discuss the reasons organizations work on diversity, equity and inclusion, why DEI doesn’t just happen organically, the actions organizations can take that are proven to advance DEI, and how to measure progress. This session is ideal for someone with foundational understanding of DEI, as well as anyone with strategic responsibilities within their organization.
