Who Should Attend
This course is ideal for HR professionals seeking to embed DEI into specific functional areas or across the entire talent management lifecycle.
Whether you are an HR business partner, a generalist, or work in a CoE, this course will help you to identify and implement new DEI strategies that will positively impact individuals, teams, and your organization as a whole.
SDEI is also recommended for teams or functions who want to work collaboratively to ensure that DEI practices are integrated throughout their organizations.
HR professionals and leaders understand the importance of DEI (Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion) and strive to continuously improve it in their organizations, but many are uncertain about where to get started or how to fully embed it in their talent management practices.
Over the past several years, HCI has examined the practices of high-performing organizations to understand how they are cultivating and measuring diversity, equity, inclusion and belonging. We’ve used that research to develop our newest certification program.
During this Strategic Diversity, Equity & Inclusion (SDEI) Certification course, you will be immersed in a highly interactive, hands-on learning experience and equipped with processes and tools necessary to put diversity, equity, and inclusion into action in your organization.
Best of all? You’ll work on a real business challenge during class and consult with our expert faculty and your colleagues.
