Introduction

The Advancing Equity, Diversity and Inclusion in Organizations micro-credential comprises four stackable micro-courses, each providing approximately 15 hours of training over three weeks. Each micro-course will be offered through online, self-paced delivery with optional real-time zoom sessions.

Learners can expect to spend five hours a week engaging in learning activities, including readings, online group discussions and assignments. Bundled together, learners earn an Advancing Equity, Diversity and Inclusion micro-credential by completing 60 hours of training.

Learners will consider the behavioural science that drives our interactions, deepen an awareness of the impacts of racism and marginalization in groups, explore measurement and engagement tools, use data to assess diversity and inclusion (EDI) in their organization, and develop action-based strategies at the individual, team and organization level to improve equity, diversity and inclusion. Upon completion, participants will have the awareness, tools, skills and strategies needed to address unconscious bias, engage diverse teams, build an inclusive organizational climate and lead EDI change.

By the end of this micro-credential learners will be able to:

  • Recognize the role of unconscious bias in the workplace.
  • Identify factors that contribute to inequities and discrimination in society.
  • Promote inclusive, respectful, and equitable environments.
  • Use appropriate terms when referring to diverse groups.
