About the course
Lead diverse and inclusive teams that outperform their peers
Fostering Inclusion and Diversity, a 3-week online program by Yale’s renowned professors, delivers the skills leaders need to build more inclusive and diverse teams, leading to improved business outcomes with increased effectiveness and innovation.
The focus of this program is on identifying and building key conceptual models you can apply to your organization dynamically. These models include: unconscious biases, promoting behavioral change, redefining leadership, recognition of dimensions of diversity, and reinforcing patterns of (dis)engagement.
The program is delivered digitally in collaboration with our online program partner, ExecOnline. ExecOnline provides a digital learning solution tailored to best deliver Yale’s research and expertise to you.
