DIVERSITY CERTIFICATION CURRICULUM

Diversity and inclusion professionals are best positioned to help organizations meet modern challenges. Unfortunately, too many are ill-equipped to take full advantage of their position due to both institutional barriers and limited, if any, professional training. They recognize and value diversity leadership competence. Yet, few seek out training designed to increase their expertise and effectiveness.

Providing the executive with the expertise needed to earn a seat at the leadership table increases recognition, adds value, and promises to drive bottom line results. Even if you already have a seat at the table, you can benefit from learning tested and proven tactics and tools that get you to the next level. The Diversity Executive Leadership Academy (DELA) is designed and developed to provide that expertise.

DELA provides professionals with the competencies needed to achieve high impact organizational inclusion results. We use our Cultural Competence - Inclusion Framework as a model for high impact expertise, consulting, and training. This approach to cultivating cultural diversity organizational leadership and development skills makes the Academy unique.

Professionals can earn Cultural Diversity & Inclusion Professional™ (CDP), Cultural Diversity & Inclusion Trainer™ (CDT), or Cultural Diversity & Inclusion Executive™ (CDE) credentials. The CDE includes CDP, CDT, and a few additional courses.
