Walking across crosswalk.

Why this program?

Among employees and their employers there is a demand to create workplaces where every individual feels welcomed, valued, and respected for who they are and their contributions, no matter their gender, age, sexual orientation, race, physical abilities, work experience, or education. In other words, the time is now to create a truly inclusive organization.

Delivered in partnership with The Humphrey Group, Inclusive Leadership provides highly relevant knowledge on the topic of diversity and inclusion, accompanied by powerful tools you can use to transform this knowledge into practice.

In Inclusive Leadership, you get exactly that. Through a dynamic mixture of self-directed learning and live instructor-led sessions, you will build a greater understanding and deeper conviction to inspire change with every module. By the end of which you will have covered the basics of the topic, defined who is responsible for diversity and inclusion, learned what it means to adopt an inclusion mindset, practiced inclusive communication, and worked alongside your peers and facilitator to apply it all. What this means is you will walk away not only educated and inspired, but ready to lead.


Through this program, you will learn what it takes to create an environment where every individual feels welcomed, valued, and respected for who they are and their contributions. By the end, you will have the knowledge and tools to:

  • Understand the current landscape of diversity and inclusion
