Inclusive Leadership Certification

This program provides managers worldwide with awareness, knowledge and skill readiness to enable individuals and groups to contribute to their fullest potential by leveraging their unique experiences, perspectives and viewpoints for the collective benefit of all stakeholders. Through case studies, exercises, discussions, video scenarios and personal feedback, managers explore critical issues related to specific workforce diversity concerns both from a global and local perspective. Your organization’s priorities, expectations and policies concerning diversity and inclusion are explained and applied to specific cases and examples. Through targeted skill building exercises, participants practice key skills to enhance inclusiveness and performance personally and in their sphere of influence. More than raising awareness, this learning solution provides managers with specific skills to (1) address diversity related concerns consistent with the organization’s philosophy and policy, and (2) foster an inclusive climate that improves organizational performance, such as speed, efficiency, creativity, innovation, motivation and corporate image. This learning solution is a key element to changing organizational culture and climate, and encourages integration and synergy of the organization. Program includes:

  • Live Virtual Meeting
  • Two Day Certification Meeting
