You’ve probably heard the word “diversity” pretty frequently both in and out of the workplace, but are you confident you understand what it means and how it might impact your life?
Diversity—along with the complementary concepts of equity, and inclusion—impacts your well-being, regardless of your background. Having a firm grasp on these terms is essential not only for a healthy workplace but ultimately a healthier way of living.
This course will introduce you to diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI). By the time you’ve finished this course, you’ll be better equipped to understand the importance of DEI and take action to support diversity initiatives in the workplace.
Topics covered in this introductory course include how we’re socialized in the world, how biases form, and how these factors affect how we think and act—and feed into various systems of oppression. By the end of this course, you will:
- Have a basic understanding of key DEI concepts.
- Recognize how your specific background fits into the society you live in.
- Know how to contribute to promoting diversity, equity, and inclusion in the workplace.
This course is addressed to all industry professionals.
