Foundations of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion in the Workplace
This eight-hour course will help you build knowledge on the topics of equity, diversity and inclusion.  You will develop skills, confidence and the capacity to make intentional changes in your workplace communication. Learners will earn a microcredential in Inclusive Communication Strategies.

The instructor made sensitive topics around inequities and systemic issues easy to discuss and offers many different approaches to moving past performative allyship and truly acting and operating in solidarity with marginalized communities. The downloadable resources really reinforced the key learning outcomes, and I liked that I can share them with others in my workplace as well. Plus, the scenarios are much more helpful than typical e-learning quizzes!
