Research clearly shows that strong, high-performing organizations deploy a diverse workforce. But to establish this type of environment, organizations must do more than simply onboarding employees from diverse backgrounds. They need to consistently and deliberately foster an environment that is inclusive and welcoming for everyone.

During this course you will explore the concept of diversity and inclusion and learn to identify various identity groups. You will be introduced to critical communication skills and consider the psychology of inclusiveness. Plus, you will learn how to prepare for and conduct difficult conversations, and you will role play common issues.

You will then investigate the current culture in your organization and identify the gaps between your existing and desired culture. You will consider how to manage the culture and diversity in your organization and at a team level. And you will explore how to make the necessary change in your organization and get everyone on board.

Overall, this course focuses on providing your organization’s leaders and managers with the skills needed to build, deploy, and sustain a powerful culture of diversity and inclusion. After completing this course, you will have empowered your leaders and managers to create a culture in which your organization will thrive.


This career-changing course comprises four purposely designed modules that take you on a carefully defined development path.

It is an instructor-led program which runs to a fixed schedule, with set start and finish dates.
