    About the course

    UCLA Anderson Executive Education has been a leader in equity, diversity and inclusion programming for more than 20 years. Our program builds on this proud tradition and the groundbreaking research, teaching and industry experience of our faculty to deliver powerful frameworks that can develop your executives into leaders with a truly inclusive mindset.

    Behaviors are more important than words

    Most organizations talk about the vital importance of diverse perspectives in driving organizational success. However, when it comes to creating an inclusive culture for their diverse workforces, they often fall short.

    Research from multiple studies confirms that organizations which succeed in implementing an effective culture of inclusion show measurable improvement on key metrics that drive business success and sustainability of the enterprise.

    The program is a blended learning journey which revolves around 3 ½ intensive days on the UCLA campus. Live webinars kick off and conclude the program and you will complete Inclusion@Work, an online digital coaching program, and pre-readings in preparation for your on-campus experience.
