What is the secret to fast-tracking a career as a cultural diversity professional?

The answer is training that focuses on developing your awareness, attitude, knowledge, and skills.

Let’s face it. Cultural diversity work is important. Business leaders warn governments against supporting harmful exclusion policies that suppress economic growth and innovation. They know that changing demographics make it necessary to defeat any laws that exclude transgender, immigrants, and people of color.

These leaders have also contributed to the rise of the cultural diversity profession, and indirectly the certification programs.

There is a difference between having credentials and being competent.

A training program designed to develop the competence you need to do the work with confidence and assurance may not offer certification. The programs that offer certification may not offer training.

Consider the range of credentialing program formats. One end of the spectrum is the weekend program that gives attendees a certification at the end. On the other end of the spectrum is the university-based program that requires several courses and a final project. There are also programs that require passing a test. Still, others require a combination of a number of years in the profession, evaluation of a candidate’s professional portfolio, and requiring each candidate to pass a test.

Which one is most suitable for you?

Well, that depends on several things, but one of the most important is how much direct training you have received.

What is diversity certification


Years of experience is certainly important. Yet, bootstrap learning tends to fall short of the professional development that comes with formal training that has been carefully put together by experts.

Prefer to Simply Pass a Test?

If you want someone to assess what terminology and best practices you have learned, testing may work. But, testing your knowledge doesn’t tell you or them if you have the awareness, attitude, and skills needed to effectively do the work.

Think about the types of things one must be prepared to navigate. One cultural diversity officer lost her position because she signed an anti-gay marriage petition passed around during Sunday morning services. She argued that her views outside of the workplace should not be considered for dismissal because she was otherwise performing well in her role. The court did not agree.

Another organization was sued by a white American male worker after he completed a required cultural diversity training. The court accepted his argument that one of the exercises created a hostile environment for him. Another cultural diversity professional was blindsided by her boss’ rejection of plans to create an employee resource group for the gay and lesbian employees. She had already set up groups for the women and African American employees.

The above real-life examples of challenges cultural diversity professionals face indicate that knowledge alone is insufficient preparation for this work.

How Can You Fast-Track Your Career?

The key to fast-tracking your career is a program that is led by experts who aim to develop your awareness, attitude, knowledge, and skills, as well as provide you with a toolkit. We build your competence, capacity, resourcefulness, and problem-solving skills.

Once the training is over, the trainer typically shakes your hand and you are thrust into the bullpen alone. Our organization includes you in the community of graduates after your credentials, provides continuous education, and strongly encourages you can contact us at any time to ask questions. We have had graduates needing advice about how to address concerns about their church pressuring them to sign an anti-gay marriage petition. Ask us how we helped them address the issue without losing face in the church.
