About the course

Lead so that every voice is heard and respected

Diversity and inclusion (D&I) has become a business imperative for organizations all over the world. However there remains widespread confusion around what inclusion is and how to create it in everyday workplace situations. In short, most organizations have already made the case for the “Why” of inclusion – but few have found ways to equip their people with the skills they need to be inclusive leaders.

Delivered in partnership with The Humphrey Group Inc., this program is an interactive online experience designed to provide you with the tools you need to create and lead inclusive teams. Learn the language and tactics of inclusive communication. Foster an environment of mutual respect. Realize the benefits of diversity by making every person you work with feel included. Make inclusivity a good business, as well as a good human, decision
